If you are one of those lucky retirees who has taken to the roads of Australia to explore this magnificent country we live in, then the Kingston Foreshore Caravan Park is the ideal stop over between Adelaide and Melbourne for the travelling Grey Nomad.
Kingston SE is located 294 kms from Adelaide, travelling south east, on the Limestone Coast. We are situated on the Esplanade, on the peaceful waters of Lacepede Bay so we have a view of the ocean. We welcome many grey nomads and caravaners over the autumn and winter period who visit us for some peace and quiet.
Caravan registrations have grown 30% since 2011 and some say the number of grey nomads have doubled in the last three years. We are well aware of the growth as we welcome back grey nomad travellers year after year in increasing numbers.
Our facilities are clean, modern, and set up to accommodate the weary traveller who might just want a night or the couple who want to stay two weeks. Either way, we have accommodation and facilities to help you relax and restore, so that when you leave you are ready for your next adventure.
Here’s why our grey nomad visitors come back every year.
Our caravan park has excellent facilities which include a kiosk, a camp kitchen, fire pit, fish cleaning facilities, dump points, outdoor BBQ’s and a laundry.
Peace and quiet
During the off-peak season, our caravan park is a quiet and relaxing place to be. There are other caravaners and grey nomads around to meet and share stories with while sitting around the fire pit, or while cooking the BBQ.
Stunning sunsets over Lacepede Bay
One of the most relaxing things to do while you are here is enjoy the sunsets over the waters of Lacepede Bay. Watching the ocean from the comfort of your caravan or around the fire pit is a cosy experience, or you might like to take a stroll on the beach to watch the sunsets.
Festivals on the Limestone Coast during Autumn and Winter
Over the autumn and winter period, there are several festivals across the Limestone Coast for wine lovers, music and art enthusiasts. The Penola Coonawarra Arts Festival happens in May, Coonawarra Cellar Dwellers is in the month of July, Generations in Jazz in Mount Gambier and more.
