Discovery Holiday Parks

Welcome to Discovery Holiday Parks - Barossa Valley



We are very excited to welcome Discovery Holiday Parks – Barossa Valley, in the heart of South Australia’s iconic Barossa Valley to the Discovery family!  Discovery Holiday Parks – Barossa Valley, formerly the Tanunda Caravan and Tourist Park, is set in the picturesque Tanunda, the main town of the world famous Barossa Valley wine region on the doorstep of wineries, walking trails, art galleries, fine dining and more.

The park lies on a beautiful and shady 7.3 hectare site and currently comprises 273 sites made up of thee luxury villas known as Barossa Havens, 35 cabins including deluxe, superior, standard, and budget accommodation options and 218 caravan and camping sites, of which 121 are powered.

The park facilities include a kiosk, two amenities blocks, two barbecue areas, a fully equipped laundry, a recreational hall that seats up to 130 people and includes games and TV rooms, a community area with a full kitchen, and a soundshell for outdoor entertainment and movies.  There’s also a solar heated swimming pool and, for the younger set, a children’s playground, an inflatable trampoline and a bicycle hire facility.

Grant Wilckens, CEO of Adelaide-based Discovery Holiday Parks, said the Tanunda park is a significant addition to the company that now stands at 33 parks – and more than 6,500 accommodation sites – located in some of the country’s most spectacular settings.

“In Discovery Holiday Parks – Barossa Valley, we have a facility that ticks all the boxes.

“It lies in the heart of the country’s most famous and celebrated wine region and its mix of luxury and standard accommodation options, powered and unpowered sites, and recreational facilities have long appealed to our core target markets of families, touring couples and the so-called grey nomads.

“Our next step is to invest in the park through general facility improvements and develop more cabin accommodation to further capitalise on the area’s enormous tourism opportunities.”

Discovery Holiday Parks – Barossa Valley, is in line with the company’s vision to include parks in the country’s most desirable locations that offer the best possible visitor experience for the caravanning, camping and holidaymaking communities.

Australian Road Trip with the Tassie Young Nomads



In May 2014 Wendy and James from Hobart packed up their lives into their new caravan and hit the open road on a journey of a lifetime travelling around Australia.  They’re sharing their story along the way with their blog Tassie Young Nomads.

Soon after heading off from Hobart Wendy and James stayed at Discovery Holiday Parks – Devonport for a few nights before boarding the Spirit of Tasmania, here’s some excerpts and photos of their stay:

June 23

We have arrived in Devonport, staying at the Discovery Holiday Park, we are now all settled in our new surroundings for the next few days. We just watched the Spirit of Tasmania leave from our van so starting to get excited about our trip. I can hear the waves and they sound so close.

June 25

This is great little park, very clean and tidy and also offering drive thru sites with ensuite. Our ensuite had spa so had to test it out today. Getting excited for tomorrow.

June 26

Chill out day today before boarding the spirit tonight and the big island tomorrow.

June 27

Boarding the Spirit Of Tasmania last night and leaving this morning. One picture of inside was tight squeeze but people behind us could hardly open there door. Very impressed with facilities on the Spirit and rooms and beds comfy. Had good crossing but they warned it would be rough so we opted for early night.


We’ll catch up with the Tassie Young Nomads later in their journey as they continue their trip around Australia!
