Bellarine Big 4, VIC


Wow is the word Chris and I said at least 20-30 times as we drove into the Big4 in Bellarine.

This caravan park was purpose built on 30 acres and even before you hit the entry that became very clear with the amount of space between the play areas, cabins and caravan sites.


At the front of park, before you even pass the boom gates kids are welcomed with 2 x large jumping pillows, full sized AFL posts, double storey cubby houses, sand pits with metal diggers, karts, a bocce pit, croquet paddock, soccer goals, flying fox and the list goes on.
We hadn’t even moved past the boom gates and our kids were in heaven. I couldn’t even keep them in the car as Chris checked in they were off and playing before I knew it.

We had the privilege of staying in a safari tent and to say this is GLAMPING is an understatement. We were greeted by an outdoor bath, Weber BBQ and swing chair on the deck, a perfect way to wind down and watch the sunset of an evening.


The safari tents have been amazingly designed and built inside. They host a large 4 post bed, bunks for the kids, a kitchenette, cute corrugated iron shower/toilet and a lounge and dining area. Even for warmer or cooler nights, the safari tents are fitted with a split cycle air conditioner for the ultimate night away.

Even though we didn’t want to leave our safari tent, this park has too much to offer to not venture out. An indoor heated play area for children 0-5yrs is comfy for the adults while the kids play.

The indoor gym that hosts many pieces of strength and cardio equipment, a large workout room, medicine balls, fit balls and a filtered water station is better than some 24hr gyms we have visited.

The list continues with an indoor heated pool with a huge slide and water play area for the kids. The temperature is beautiful for all year round swimming.

We hired karts and followed a bike path around the entire outside of the park. This allowed us to see other facilities that the park offers like another large jumping pillow, multiple swing sets, croquet and boche fields, bike tracks and jumps, flying fox, large camp kitchen, herb gardens, fruit trees and beautiful manicured gardens that had Chris drooling.

We’ve said in the past that a caravan park has it all and this one truely does. It was just like being at an amusement park. The activities for kids including ice cream station, movies in a theatre room coupled with a coffee/ sittings area for adults makes this park a park that truly caters for everyone.

You would need a week here to experience everything properly with the kids and it’s a credit to staff and owners of how wonderful it truly is.

Visiting this park created memories of a lifetime and we feel so lucky and appreciative to be able to have experienced it.
