Here are some of our favourite holiday tips:

“Take along baby powder for the beach. It helps dry the moisture and gets the sand off in all the nooks and crannies, which makes a visit to the beach much more enjoyable.”
– Fiona G

“Always put a tarp under the base of your tent when setting up; it will protect the tent and prolong its life.”
– Sue K

“Always pack dinner for the first night. There’s nothing better than setting up and having a home-cooked meal ready to go with a cold drink of choice.”
– Melinda R

“Research the area you’re travelling to before you leave home. Tourism websites and your friendly BIG4 Facebook page are a great starting point to discover the best places to eat, sight-see, and play!”
– Debby D

“Glowsticks! They come in handy for so many things! Pop them around your tent pegs so no-one is tripping over ropes in the dark. Make each of the kids a colour-coded wrist band out of them, then you can not only see where they are in the dark but also distinguish who is who.”
– Joe T

“Make a list of everything you think you will need, and once you leave home embrace the adventure!”
– Rosan O

“… my tip would be make sure you take a tap fitting for when you connect to their water, just in case. We had to run around looking for one on our first night.”
– Allison R

“Always be prepared for anything. Keep your stuff stored in clip containers; wildlife is everywhere. Always zip your tent up and keep your campsite clean, so if there is a storm or heavy winds, it’s easy to keep everything together …”
– Vicky C

“… don’t pack the kitchen sink, don’t overfill your boot, don’t crowd your itinerary. Allow for some flexibility, remember it’s a holiday, so ensure sufficient tranquillity!”
– Sofronios E
