With technology driving every aspect of our everyday lives, digital devices are often the primary source of information and entertainment for the family unit. While the desire to be ‘always connected’ seems stronger than ever, many families are now seeking ways to switch off from the online world to avoid technology overload.


Escaping the Hustle and Bustle

As the saying goes ‘the more things change, the more they stay the same’ as more and more parents find themselves taking the kids on a good old family camping trip as a way of escaping the hustle and bustle of modern life. Caught up in the whirlwind of city living, work-life balance can get out of kilter for many families, with time spent with each other being put on the back-burner. While many adults have fond memories of camping with their own families as children: spending time cooking around campfires, playing family games, making memories and learning life skills – it’s their own children who are missing out.


Affordable City Escape

Owners of the Crows Nest Tourist Park Gerald Searle and Philip Curnuck understand the benefits of escaping back to nature. With plenty of space, the park is the perfect location for a family camping stay. Just 2 hours from Brisbane, the tourist park offers an affordable way for families to camp out in a safe environment with modern facilities close at hand. 

Visitors to the park are spoilt for choice when it comes to activities in and around the park. Walk your dog, go bushwalking, take a hike, visit a lookout, spot some wildlife, fly your drone or play some outdoor games. Camping and exploring is a great way to encourage your family to become more active without it feeling like a chore. 

Crows Nest Tourist Park has over 95 powered and non-powered campsites. Or for the less outdoorsy types, the park also has over 24 cabins to ensure you and your family get the most out of your time away.
