Motor-racing circuit

National park

Where: BIG4 Cania Gorge, QLD.

This example doesn’t quite fit the brief: We’re focusing on what’s directly outside the park rather than within it. And that is jewel-laden Cania Gorge National Park. Its centrepiece is the spectacular sandstone gorge its named after, which makes for breathtaking exploration and photo ops aplenty.

The immense treasure extends to wildlife that includes rock wallabies, almost 100 different bird species, and ancient Aboriginal rock art. And the holiday park has plenty to enjoy as well, including an epic water play area and a par-three golf course.

Oyster Shed

Where: BIG4 Sandstone Point, QLD.

There’s a great backstory to this historical facility, built in 1875 by a prominent oyster farmer. In fact, BIG4 Sandstone Point now occupies land that was once home to this successful oyster farm, about an hour’s drive north of Brisbane.

The Oyster Shed has since been restored by the holiday resort’s owners. It dishes up delicious local seafood from a delightful waterfront location, just a short stroll from the park’s front gate.
