BIG4 Macdonnel Ranges Review

BIG4 Macdonnell Range Holiday Park, Alice Springs – An Unexpected Delight!

We NEVER expected that one of our favourite holiday parks would be found in Alice Springs! But it was!

BIG4 Macdonnell Range was AWESOME! And to think I was dead against staying there!!!

“Nope, not staying at BIG4 Macdonnell Range in Alice” I said initially. “It’s got water slides and bouncy pillows. The problem with those parks is the kids have TOO much fun and never want to leave the park to explore the area. We didn’t come to Alice Springs to see the inside of a Caravan Park!!!”

Situated 45mins drive south of Burnie, Waratah has some quite distinctive features and was an unexpected highlight when we visited Tasmania earlier this year.
