Austin Tourist Park     Read more ...

Austin Tourist Park is located on New England Highway (581 Armidale Road) as you drive into Tamworth from Armidale.  This park is a member of Top Parks - resident owners are Frank and Christine Edwards. Austin Tourist Park is a five minutes drive to the centre of town and located beside the Oasis Hotel - cold drinks and food.

The driveway to the park runs beside the reception area with cabins located along the access road.  There are some lovely caravan spots out the back on a grassed area with plenty of trees and backing onto the Peel river. A new amenities block has been built near the rear of the park with some ensuite type bathrooms. 

There is also an older amenities block towards the driveway.  Both amenities appeared to be neat and tidy. 

We found the staff very friendly and happy to provide us with a brochure and fees for an overnight stay at some time in the future.

BIG4 Paradise Tamworth     Read more ...

While visiting Tamworth in Northern NSW we stayed at the BIG4 Paradise Tourist Park on Peel Street. This lovely park is in a great location with easy access to local attractions and walking distance to the CBD.  In fact it is only one block from the Country Music Hall of Fame - Tamworth is known as the Country Music Capital of Australia and attracts thousands of visitors each year.

The BIG4 Paradise Tourist park has two sections, indicated on the park map as the Peel Street Side and the East Street side. These sections are separated by a quiet block of Peel Street and there is very little traffic.  We were greeted warmly by the friendly staff and were able to wander around and choose a site that suited our needs. We chose to stay in the East Street section on a large grassy site close to the amenities. These amenities are very clean and spacious with a disabled bathroom and separate laundry.

Some features of this lovely caravan park are:

  • covered barbeque area with plenty of seating
  • very large camp kitchen with a lounge area.  Again plenty of seating and extremely clean and well equipped  This kitchen is fully enclosed with glass doors allowing natural light into the area.
  • fully fenced pool with a couple of shaded seating areas for parents to sit in comfort and keep an eye on the kids  
  • there is also a smaller covered barbeque area within the East Street Section of the park - convenient for guests staying here
  • dump point near amenities
  • plenty of shade
  • beautiful cabins - some overlooking the Peel River
  • Tourist information at reception
  • courtesy bus picks up from the park gates for local clubs
  • powered and unpowered caravan and camping sites.

We enjoyed our time in Tamworth at BIG4 Paradise Tourist Park and ended up staying for more than a week (we received a discount for the 7th night of our stay). BIG4 discounts also apply for accommodation at the park. This park has one of the best camp kitchens and outdoor barbeque areas we have seen and is big enough to cater for large groups. This would be a great asset during the famous Country Music Festival held in Tamworth each January. 

This member of the RvTrips team highly recommends BIG4 Paradise Tourist Park as the place to stay when visiting Tamworth.
