Sausage and bread. Kath and Kim. Green and gold. Kylie and Jason. Vegemite and toast.
Some of the great Aussie partnerships in history and, another iconic duo has been added to the long list - Discovery Parks and Top Parks – well, we think so at least!We’re often asked; “Are Top Parks and Discovery Parks the same?”
Fair dinkum, we are!
Both brands are owned by G’DAY Group Holdings and the network consists of 60+ parks that are owned and operated by Discovery Parks, and 220+ parks that are independently owned and licensed to the Top Parks brand. The brands have combined to create Australia’s largest regional network of caravan, holiday and resort parks, ensuring our country is thoroughly explored and full of some very happy campers - it’s a partnership made in travel heaven!
There’s very little difference between the brands, their roots and what they have to offer caravan and camping enthusiasts. Both:
- Have “Parks” in their name (obvious but true!)
- Are dinky-di Aussie, and Australian-owned brands
- Have their headquarters in South Australia
- Are passionate about our extremely large country and its beautiful regions
- Want to make sure your caravan and camping experience is phenomenal!
With over 280+ parks in the combined Discovery Parks and Top Parks network (and continually growing), our park-to-park referral system can easily take you on a road trip from Hobart to Lake Kununurra. With holiday parks in some of the most sensational and popular locations around Australia – beach, mountains, wine regions, outback, rivers, lakes, metro city and more - the decision on where to go first is going to be hard!The second decision, what accommodation do I choose? We have a range of accommodation to suit everyone and every holiday style from 4.5-star family luxury to isolated campsites. There are cabins (standard, deluxe, superior) that can sleep 2 to 10 people and fitted with the comforts of home including beds, linen, kitchen, bathrooms, air-conditioning and more. For those driving the big lap in their caravan or motorhome, we have powered, unpowered, ensuite and drive-through camp sites ready for your rig, or to pitch your tent and sleep under the stars. We also have a camping experience without the creepy crawlies and a high thread count; luxurious glamping safari tents. We understand that furry friends are an essential part of the family and they don’t need to be left behind when you hit the holiday road, and we’re ready to welcome them too with many pet-friendly options^.
^Please note - Each holiday park has an individual "Dog Friendly" policy and we recommend checking with the park before booking your stay.
While we absolutely encourage you to explore and support the regional community you are visiting, it’ll be hard to drag yourself away from the lifestyle our parks have to offer. Both Discovery Parks and Top Parks have so many things to keep little (and big) kids entertained for days with swimming pools, waterparks, jumping pillows, tennis courts, mini golf, playgrounds, bike tracks, equipment hire, communal BBQ areas, fire pits.. and that’s just scratching the surface of the variety of facilities on offer!
We also highly encourage you to mingle and share stories from the road with other park guests and, our in-park activities from meet and greet Happy Hours, sausage sizzles and kid’s club school holiday programs provide a relaxed and welcoming environment for this.
