For anyone that has been reading our blogs (I thank you!), we have obviously returned from our little Inland Water Holiday Parks adventure. This took place during the warm month of December last year, just before the Christmas holidays started.
Our adventure started from Evans Head across the Bruxner Highway to our first stop at Inland Waters Holiday Parks Copeton Waters. It was a lovely drive across, the hills got a bit trying at times especially when you kept comparing your time to the recorded 4.5hrs Google Maps was telling us. Google didn’t know that we were towing a caravan however and this being our first trip we had no idea how much longer it would take us either. Skip roughly 8 hours later and we made it. We actually arrived after hours and very embarrassed that we had done so. Luckily they knew we were coming and had everything ready for us. One word to describe Copeton Waters…huge! I thought that we had a big park but this place is something else. We stayed close to the reception area as it was near the playgroup and the excellent kids water feature play area, plus jumping pillow for Harley so he was very happy. We went for a drive around the grounds and there are so many beautiful unpowered sites available that if you go in the quiet times or during the week then you don’t have any neighbours near you at all. We had 2 nights there to get over our long drive and really enjoyed being amongst nature and the wildlife. Plenty of kangaroos.
Inland Waters Holiday Park Lake Keepit was our next stop where we spent one night. We were lucky enough to get a shady spot as it had gotten hotter the further inland and south we went. Air-con on! We had a look at one of the cabins and they were really well set out and furnished. Would loved to have stayed in one of the Safari tents they have which came with beautiful views of the lake. There were a lot of day visitors there and they also had a great water feature which was perfect for the hot weather. This park even had a BMX track, skate bowl, tennis courts, volley ball courts and great access to the outdoor activities that a lake can offer.
Nights 4 and 5 were at Inland Waters Holiday Parks Lake Burrendong and what a welcoming. Jason and Tami were so lovely and gave us a great tour of their park and also Inland Waters Holiday Park Mookerawa Waters which is about a 30 minute drive away. Lake Burrendong comes with its own garbage truck so we had one very happy 2 year old! The best part of the holiday he tells us. The views from the cabins are spectacular with plenty of wildlife around as well. This park even comes with its own golf course (Adrian a little disappointed he didn’t put the clubs in but again the air-con got a work out!) and has hundreds of head of cattle roaming the park!
These parks are so different to the coastal parks and different is not a bad thing at all. It was such an eye opener as managers and a great experience as first time caravaners! Thank you to all the managers we met and we hope to repay the favour one day and we’ll show you what our beautiful Evans Head has to offer!
