I’m very lucky to be able to visit BIG4 Holiday Parks around Australia as part of my job at BIG4. A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of staying at BIG4 Deniliquin Holiday Park in New South Wales. The trip from Melbourne is relatively easy – just over 3.5 hours – and the destination is definitely worthwhile!
As you come through the entrance of BIG4 Deniliquin Holiday Park, it’s easy to slip into holiday mode, but as you drive around the corner it’s the unexpected beauty of the Edward River that really takes visitors by surprise. You’re immediately ready to relax on a private balcony when you see the gorgeous cabins lining the riverfront.
