BIG4 Barossa in Spring: Our Favourite Areas of the Park

We love seeing the seasons change in the Barossa, and one such place that truly comes alive in spring is the BIG4 Barossa Tourist Park. Nestled in the heart of the Barossa Valley, this holiday destination is a haven for nature lovers and relaxation seekers.

Join us for a virtual tour of the park through the eyes of Martin Field, Operations Manager at BIG4 Barossa, as he shares his favourite areas of the park during the spring season.


The Sparkling Pool

“Spring at BIG4 Barossa is a time of rejuvenation, and there’s no better place to experience it than at our sparkling pool,” says Martin.

The pool, a central feature of the park, is a delightful escape from the warming sun of spring and summer (but is also heated for those milder days!).

“After a day of exploring the region’s wineries and scenic trails, our guests love to take a dip in the crystal-clear waters. It’s a place where families gather, kids splash around, and everyone can unwind.”

The pool area, which has just reopened for the season, is surrounded by lush greenery and comfortable lounge chairs.

“The poolside atmosphere is truly relaxing. It’s where memories are made, and guests can connect with each other amidst the beauty of the Barossa.”

Premium Sites on Nature’s Doorstep

The premium powered sites come alive in spring, which boast impeccably manicured, lush lawns, private firepits, and are surrounded by tall, shady trees.

“Our premium powered sites are a little slice of paradise,” Martin says.

“What makes these sites special is the feeling of space and serenity. They’re surrounded by nature, with tall trees and blooming flowers providing shade and a touch of tranquillity,” says Martin. “It’s the perfect place for a leisurely breakfast, a game of frisbee, or simply basking in the beauty of the season.”

These premium sites offer spacious and well-maintained areas for guests to set up their accommodation, as well as being only footsteps from the camp kitchen and barbecue.

Backing onto these sites is the Coulthard Reserve, a pristine nature reserve with webs of bike paths and trails that begin the journey from the park to the region’s nearby wineries and cellar doors. Along with offering a beautiful natural outlook for guests camping at these sites, spring brings a symphony of wildlife to the reserve.

“The reserve is teeming with birdlife; you can spot kookaburras, rosellas, and even the occasional kangaroo hopping by. It’s a paradise for birdwatchers and nature enthusiasts.”
