Holidays With Kids

Post date: Tuesday, 23 June 2015 - 8:55pm




Holidays with Kids ambassadors Frankie J Holden and Michelle Pettigrove love camping – so much so that they’ve bought their own caravan park! The stars of the camping television program, What’s Up Downunder have spent the last 18 months travelling around Australia with their daughter Georgia, and have bought into Tathra Beach Family Park, right on the beach on the NSW far south coast.

“When the opportunity came up to actually get involved in the industry we jumped at it. What we’re aiming to do,” said Frankie with that typical larrikin grin, “is to pinch all the best ideas from the best parks we’ve visited all around the country and use them at Tathra Beach Family Park.”

Frank did have one original idea, however – the Great Tathra Family Park Challenge, designed to be an Olympic Games of all things camping. Running from September 27-29, the events will include the great ‘slalom caravan backing competition’, the ‘family bucket relay’ and the ‘instruction-less tent erection time trials’, to name a few.

“We aim to unearth Australia’s champion caravanning and camping family” says Frankie.
