Explore the ancient Ngilgi Cave, located in the Margaret River Wine Region just off Caves Road.
MARGARET RIVER is a world away from the rest of Australia in one direction, and about 10,000km of Indian Ocean before you hit South Africa in the other. Charmed with some of the world’s best beaches and famous vineyards, its isolation is what lends it so much charm in that there’s a big dose of tranquility served with it’s natural beauty.
Thetford, inventor of the world’s first camping toilet, has launched the next generation of its portable toilet; Porta Potti. Taking leisure to the next level, a Porta Potti offers unparalleled comfort, as well as a sanitary solution that doesn’t require a connection to a drainage or water system.
Porta Potti Excellence
Perfect for the traveller who wants to have access to a toilet while out on the road, a Porta Potti is the hygenic, convenient and environmentally friendly solution to disposing of waste when in the great outdoors.
To celebrate the launch of the next generation in portable toilets,we recently held a competition giving away 6 Porta Potti packs valued at $314 each. Each pack included a Porta Potti Excellence toilet, two toilet additives and aqua-soft toilet paper.
The competition has closed and the winners have been selected. But we couldn’t just leave it there and not share the winning 6 responses.

Roll your finger up and down a map of Australia’s east coast above Brisbane and star attractions include the Sunshine Coast, the Whitsundays, Bundaberg and Cairns. It’s all about sunshine, beach and some amazing aquatic activities for anyone on a road trip.
Even beautiful Fraser Island trumps its mainland brothers for luring visitors, while Hervey Bay, right opposite the heritage-listed sand island, often slips under the radar.

We were recently contacted by long term BIG4 Club Card members Brian and Joy H. Avid travellers who are soon to retire from towing their van to enjoying cabin accommodation, we were delighted to be able to share a few recollections from their travels across the years!
Brian wrote: “We will be re-joining BIG4 again for the next two years; we have been given good service by you for the last twenty two years and we will continue on until we can no longer travel together by car.”
Brian and Joy have been BIG4 Club Card Members since 1990, where they joined at BIG4 Capricorn Palms Holiday Village – Yeppoon. We were curious to find out more about their last 54 years travelling, but could never have imagined the interesting account we would have received! We thank Brian and Joy for sharing a few insights of their travels.
To celebrate the re-release of Disney.Pixar’s “Monster,Inc.” in 3D, we recently held a competition giving away 50 family passes to see this movie return on the big screen. Entrants were asked this:
“What is the most embarrassing thing your “little monster” has done whilst on holidays or out in public?”
The competition has now closed, and needless to say; we have received some cracker entries. Thank you to everyone who submitted an entry. The 50 winners have now been chosen and your family pass is on its way.
In the meantime, we would like to share just a few of our personal favourites. We hope they bring a smile to your face:
Keep this kids cool this summer with the interactive new water parks that are appearing at many of our BIG4 Holiday Parks. Rather than just your average pool, with a kiddies section, which are often stressful for parents of little kids in terms of safety, the water parks are perfect.
