6 reasons to visit Big4 Gold Coast Holiday Park this year

With new deluxe cabins, glamping tents, an eco-sustainable playground, AND a dog-friendly environment, there are even more reasons to visit BIG4 Gold Coast Holiday Park in 2024.

BIG4 Gold Coast Holiday Park has long been a favourite destination for families due to its perfect blend of entertainment, affordability and comfort. The water park is next level, and the fact it is dog friendly and you can self-cater (or not!) means it ticks boxes for every family member. Yet, always looking for ways to improve even more, this inventive park has added some exciting features over recent months that families will love.

New cabins at Big4 Gold Coast Holiday Park

The deluxe cabins have been incredibly popular over recent years. So new for 2024 are eight new deluxe cabins in the Oasis area.

The Oasis cabins are all grouped near the water park, with a tranquil garden area in the centre to give it an added sense of zen.

“We’ve got eight new Oasis cabins, four of which are three-bedroom deluxe retreats and four of which are two-bedroom family deluxe cabins, one of which is an accessible cabin,” says Candy Workman, Sales and Business Development Manager at Gold Coast Holiday Park.

“These are a bit more upmarket from our previous cabins, with more modern decor, brass fittings in the kitchen and bathroom areas and just a little more luxury.”

The new cabins are comfortable and spacious, with everything you need, including a washing machine in the three-bedroom cabins and a full kitchen (excluding an oven) in both cabins.

The three-bedroom cabins fit up to 10 people, and the family cabins fit up to six.

New Safari tents

The most exciting addition for 2024 is the opening of the two new Safari tents in January. Fitting up to six people, each tent has a four-poster bed, a bunk bed, two single beds in a nook, a kitchenette, a bathroom and a living/dining space. There is also a gorgeous veranda with a sunken lounge and a clawfoot bathtub. Both tents overlook the saltwater creek.

“We are really excited about the safari tents, offering that camping experience with a lot of luxury and with the beautiful view of the water,” says Candy.

Eco-sustainable playground

The eco-sustainable playground opened in 2023 and is rapidly becoming a hugely popular feature of the holiday park.

Made from recycled materials, such as ocean waste, plastics and textiles, with low carbon aluminium, which is produced by renewable energy such as water, wind and solar, it is designed to motivate children to play, learn how to move, improve balance, and socialise with other kids.

“It’s such a great place where the kids can go and have fun,” says Candy. “There are several seating areas, so the parents can relax and enjoy a coffee. Plus, it’s right next to the basketball courts where the older kids can go and play games. The dog park’s right there as well, so the dogs can also have a runaround. So the whole family can go down the back and enjoy themselves.”


A dog friendly Gold Coast Holiday Park

With 32 acres of space, two dedicated off-leash dog parks, plenty of dog-friendly campsites and 20 dog-friendly cabins, Big4 Gold Coast Holiday Park is the perfect destination for families with fur babies.

Along with the dedicated off-leash areas within the park, there are several off-leash areas to enjoy locally. These include Spit Beach (a 20-minute drive), Damian Leeding Memorial Park and Nerang’s riverside dog walk (a 10-minute drive).

Dogs are also welcome on the terrace at Nibbles, the park’s yummy cafe.
