Taunton Farm regulars - celebrating 21 years
This group of nearly 50 family members and friends have returned to the Margaret River region for their 21st visit to Taunton Farm Holiday Park this year. The original group of Diane and Mike Symonds, John Churchman, Anne Churchman, Sue Churchman, Bill Churchman and Lorraine and Stuart Mackenzie have been visiting for over two decades and say that park owners Rob and Julie Saunders and their staff “provide a second to none holiday”.
The Churchmans grew up in Bunbury and now reside in Perth, where they depart each Easter for their annual southern holiday. “The great thing about the park is what they have done for the kids over the years, the extra mile they go to for that special memory,” Mr Churchman said.
“There was the old hay rides, we have the Easter egg hunt where they throw the eggs off the back of the ute, there’s campfires and animals for the kids to feed, it’s just wonderful.
Book a stay at Taunton Farm Holiday Park today and discover the wonders of the region for yourself!

A happy family - Darren and Samantha
BIG4 Members since 2016
BIG4 members Darren, Samantha and their son have been travelling to various BIG4 Holiday Parks since they first bought their camper van in April 2014. They shared their most recent holiday story with us:
“This Easter we had an amazing trip meeting up with other family members along the way. Myself, my Husband and our Son are regular visitors to Big 4 sites, we all jump in our orange VW Kombi and head of for a few days on fun and relaxation.
This Easter we wanted to share the experience with some our family and so we arranged to meet up with my brother and his family at Discovery Parks BIG4 - Eden as it was the middle point between Jervis Bay and Melbourne.
That was all booked when my sister-in-law's parents said they were coming for a visit from South Africa, so we added a cabin to our booking for them.
We had a wonderful few days with everyone at Eden, the 3 children had a wonderful time exploring the site and the beach. We all loved listening to the sound of the waves at night.”

First-time caravanners - Alana and her family
BIG4 Members since 2017
After their recent purchase of a new camper van, BIG4 member Alana and her family decided a BIG4 Holiday Park was the perfect place to take it on its maiden voyage. Judging by the story they shared with us, it was a roaring success!
“We recently purchased a Jayco Swan and thought we should take it (my 4 year old son has proudly name him Corey the Camper Van) out for a test run. We are from Adelaide and have a love for the Fleurieu Peninsula, so thought it would be great to check out the BIG4 Port Elliot Holiday Park.
Off we went on our adventure for the weekend. We had an absolutely fantastic trip. Corey the Camper Van was a piece of cake to set up/down, which gave us ample time to enjoy. The park and its facilities are loved by the owners and i was so impressed. We made friends with our camping neighbors, getting tips and tricks from the experts. My son made a bunch of friends and was riding around on his bike and bouncing on the mat from sun up to sun down.
We enjoyed a glass or two of wonderful SA vino, while cooking a lovely BBQ and watching the sun set (with a seal making an appearance). What more could we want?
This camping thing as definitely won our hearts. Already working out our next visit back to the BIG4 Port Elliot Holiday Park.”
