5 Essential Facebook caravan and camping groups (Australia)

Posted Posted in Tips

Facebook groups – love them or loathe them, you’re probably already a member of at least 10. Facebook is overrun with thousands of groups, catering to every topic under the sun. Groups can be an amazing source of information, camaraderie, and (of course) humour.

Since we’re all about caravanning, camping, holiday parks and vanlife, we wanted to showcase some of the Australian Facebook groups in this post. Australia’s caravan and camping community is absolutely massive. From vanlifers doing their “big lap” of Australia, to grey nomads redefining retirement, people from all walks of life love life on the road. Groups can either cater to a specific demographic (like big lappers) or be centred around a particular theme (like Holiday park reviews). It can be tough wading through all the group options available, so we’ve narrowed it down to our top 5.
