The RAC Busselton Holiday Park is what our family call luxury camping. The camp site is HUGE, very spacious pitches, set amongst Peppermint trees. If you camp a lot as a family you’ll be pleased to know there’s lots of grassed and shaded areas as well as a tarmac road around the entire complex, which is great for the kids who love to play around on their scooters and bikes.
The facilities at RAC Busselton Holiday Park are also a plenty, with adequate clean toilet and showers blocks, camp kitchen with all the accessories, kids indoor games room, jumping pillow, nature playground, sand based playground with swings, mini golf, BMX track, cricket/soccer/footie area and a beautiful lake brimming full of wildlife.
The park is about a 10 minute drive into Busselton and a short walk to the beach along a walk way. You do have to cross a very busy road to get to the beach but it’s well worth it!
Luxury and camping don’t usually belong in the same sentence, but on this family camping trip, we decided to upgrade our camp site to include an en-suite toilet, sink and shower facility. We weren’t disappointed! Perfect for families with young toddlers and babies and great for convenience. The ensuite is super clean and comes with your own key for the door so no one else can use your facilities.
Pitches are very spacious and plenty of shade from surrounding trees.
If you feel the need for more luxury, you can hire one of the numerous apartments complete with all amenities you’d need and overlooking the gorgeous lake area.
There are BBQ blocks all around the park, some with sinks for washing up which is super convenient!
There’s a lovely little shaded playground area set in sand complete with slide, climbing ladders and monkey bars and several swings.
The jumping pillow is fully shaded, fenced and enclosed and always a big hit with kids of all ages!
The Volley ball and basket ball area are also great for older kids.
You can hire the mini golf kits from the main reception and is something fun to do in the early hours of the morning or as an after dinner activity.
There’s also a nature play area with bridges and balancing beams.
The large lake to the back of the park has plenty of wildlife to explore but is not suitable for swimming so watch the little ones.
There’s a little bridge to cross over part of the lake and on the other side is a huge play area for the kids including, a BMX Bike track, Cricket stumps and Rugby/AFL poles.
Next to the playground and central ablution block is a family games room, complete with pool tables, ping pong, foosball and tvs for gaming. The main kitchen and dining area has a lovely alfresco area for families to chill out in the early evenings while the kids play on the grassed area, bouncy pillow and playground.
If that wasn’t enough to do there are also two beautifully laid out swimming pools complete with sun loungers. This area is fully enclosed, gated and fenced. One pool is heated throughout the year and the other is a nice cool temperature. The kids has great fun jumping from one into the other 😉 There’s some shade from the mature trees around the grassed area of the pool as well as a bali style shade hut.
Kids are free to use their bikes and scooters around the park, but they MUST WEAR HELMETS! The park also hires out go karts for a fee.
Lastly, the beach is a few minutes walk away and is truly divine. Very shallow entry, hardly any waves and very empty when we went.
