BIG4 Traralgon Park Lane Holiday Park – Melbourne family holidays

BIG4 Traralgon Park Lane Holiday Park

BIG4 Traralgon Park Lane Holiday Park is an easy two-hour drive from Melbourne. Turning in, we immediately knew we were in for a fun time. We could see a huge adventure ropes course, a jumping pillow, a playground and a swimming pool. The kids were already exclaiming in excitement!

The holiday park itself is immaculately kept. Brightly coloured cabins line quiet, paved streets. Beautiful trees, hedges and gardens decorate the park.

We passed motorhomes, caravans and tents. Children rode their scooters along the streets whilst parents lounged in camp chairs, chatting. The atmosphere was one of relaxed family fun. Traralgon Park Lane is a pet-friendly holiday park, so even the family pet is welcome at all sites and cabins.

As soon as we got settled in, the kids were very eager to go and explore all the fun of the park  – and who could blame them!

We went on the jumping pillow every day!

We all went for a bounce on the huge jumping pillow first – it was a lot of fun! But with so much entertainment to choose from at Traralgon Park Lane, it wasn’t long before the Park’s own hire pedal go-karts were calling – and off we went for a few laps around the park. Both kids and adults are welcome to ride on them, and it’s a great family activity to do together.

Almost every day we loved to head to the solar-heated swimming pool for a refreshing swim, or just to relax by the pool. There is an indoor heated spa just next door to the pool too.

The kid’s moulded plastic playground is a real treat for toddlers up to school-age children. It has with lots of different obstacles to climb and slides to try. For peace of mind, the playground, jumping pillow and pool are all protected with shade sails to help keep sun off.

There’s so much to do at Traralgon Park Lane!

We decided to play the 18-hole Mini Golf course first. Fantastically themed with massive dinosaur models, life-sized pirates, Scooby-Doo, the Cars Movie and lots more, it’s a really unique and fun activity – and makes for some really great family photos in front of the T-Rex!

Next we took the challenge, and headed up the exciting adventure ropes course. It’s safety-first, and climbers watch an instruction video, before donning a full harness and hard-hat. All climbers are attached to the structure with metal cables at all times, which starts with easier levels, increasing in difficulty with each level. This was a super-fun family activity, and we all really enjoyed tackling the course.

Next-up, the kids asked me if I was up for a game of Laser Tag? Challenge, accepted! We all got suited up and headed inside the giant inflatable structure. There’s nothing quite as exciting as running around in the semi-dark shooting at each other with laser guns. It was so much fun, and our tactics so hilarious, we couldn’t stop laughing the whole time!

We were very happy with our cabin. A full kitchen made self-catering a breeze, and having a washing machine and dryer made it so much easier to keep up with the family laundry. The dishwasher was another huge time-saver – both children AND parents get to relax on this holiday!
