Now we’re talking!! Big 4 West MacDonnell Ranges has everything that leaves families wanting to stay longer!
As we have visited so many parks of late we had forgotten how great a Big 4 park truly is and all the great things they have to offer for kids!
As soon as we arrived the kids headed off. They were torn between the huge waterslide that goes into one of their 4 x pools (one of those being heated to a beautiful 26 degrees), 2 x large jumping pillows, a play park, a games room, karts for hire, a TV room, a BMX track and the basketball court.
Once the kids had dashed off for a play, Chris headed off to the gym. He was super keen seeing this is something we havent seen in a park since we left!!
The Big 4 hosts large grassy sites that were so nice to walk on in this dry country of ours. We’ve tracked so much red dirt into our van over the last 2 weeks, the grass was very welcomed and allowed the kids to play ball sports on them for days!!
In addition to to the fun activities for the kids, the park has numerours large camp kitchens with herb gardens besides them for extra flavour whilst were cooking PLUS fresh drinking water. Water has been hard to come by at a few parks so we quite quickly felt relaxed being able to hydrate from our own van.
On site this Big 4 also has its own fuel station, multiple fire pits, a dinner truck and a coffee and strawberry pancake van that also has a gas heater to enjoy your dinner under some heat.
We had an amazing time at Big 4, MacDonnell Range. It really made us feel recharged like we had hit the reset button after some big days of driving and exploring in the outback. It really made our trip super enjoyable with the kids being able to get out to play at the park, on the trampolines and jumping pillows right in the middle of the Outback!!
We travel further north now to see more of our beautiful country!
