Were heading over to Adelaide in January and was wanting to know which caravan park would you recommend staying at?
Were more than likely gonna stay in a cabin aswell.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
Stayed at Belair in January a couple of times and was happy with the place. It's up in the hills a bit and a little cooler than most of Adelaide. Very leafy too, nestled between the national park & golf club.
The last time was quite a few years ago so things could have changed.
I live in metro Adelaide so I don't really stay in our Caravan parks but I hear the one at West Beach is pretty good. Sorry, can't remember the exact name but might be Adelaide Shores or something like that. It has lots of big Cabins too. Right on the beach and next door to Glenelg. Its very popular so if it sounds like your thing book early. If you do end up staying there or anywhere else close by, check out a restaurant called Kefi-good Greek food and I promise you will not be stopping for Macca's on the way home!
belair has had a few manager changes in last 4 yrs. west beach is good but very busy. for close to the city try Adelaide caravan pk at hackney. big 4 at marion is good too. I used to deliver to lots of these. so if want any other ideas just ask.
Good ones we've stayed at were Big 4 Marion, Christies Beach Tourist Pk (almost on foreshore) and Levi Caravan Pk at Vale Park.
By good I mean they were in nice settings and great amenities and well kept, little or no permanents, and nothings real far away from anything in Adelaide lol.
At Levi Cvan pk there is a massive beautiful old colonial house in the middle of it which used to belong to a wealthy pastoralist Phillip Levi but its a bed and breakfast now
We are at west adelaide van park now. Been here a few days, windy as fk. Had to take annex down and a few others had to pack up. Parks good not sure if its normal weather for here. Walk to surf club and yacht club towards glenelg. Yacht club has amazing food but only food on sat sun and wed iirc. Mrs had barra and it was awesome. Tram from glenelg to city is $10 each but parking at glenelg was $2/ hr cops everywhere with meter men so pay up. Close to woolies etc. Nice showers etc cabins looked good but maybe dont book beachfront as wind will play a factor. Happy to scope anything you need while we are here.
There are some very nice restaurants in glenelg. Sammys on the marina is very expensive, but awesome seafood.
Phuket Thai on the brighton road end of jetty road is very authentic (i know the owners). Also the BBQ inn next door is good.
If you catch the tram into the city there is the central markets at the Victoria square stop, then jump back on the tram (its free in the city) and get off at rundle mall. Or do them over 2 days if you wanna take your time.
If you like laksa look for the laksa house in the markets food court. Lots of food and eateries in the city.
Rundle street on the end of rundle mall is good for a stroll too. You can park in some places in the city for 2 hours for free but the sticker lickers will jump you if you are a minute over. All day parking is $15-$20 in some car parks. Some have higher clearances than others.
The wind seems to have dropped off this morning which should be a relief.
