We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Big4 Cania Gorge Holiday Park and to introduce ourselves - Peter & Jill Rankin. We are the owners and managers of the Park. There is lots of fun & interesting things to do at our caravan park. Here are some you should know about:-
* 'EVENTS ROOM'
BIG4 Cania Gorge Holiday Park have established an 'Events Room'. The room is well equipped to facilitate all your Corporate or Family Event Solutions e.g.
* Training Courses
Make BIG4 Cania Gorge the place to hold your next Event whilst staying in one of our onsite Villas or Cabins. We also have plenty of Powered or Unpowered sites if you choose to bring a caravan or tent. Call Reception for further details on 07 4167 8188.
We feed the native bird life every afternoon at 5pm (4.30pm during winter). This is a great experience for the whole family because you not only learn about the birds but you also get to feed them yourself. Bring your camera, a hat & a shirt!
The kids will have a ball on our 2 jumping pillows. It will wear them out as well as giving you some quiet time. They operate between 7.00 am & 6.00pm.
Pools & Water Park Complex
Cool down, relax and read a book by any of the 3 Pools. Kids will just love to play in the new Water Park. Mums & Dads, it is your responsibility to supervise the kids when they are in the Pool/Water Park Complex. The complex hours are 7am to dusk.
Family movies are held at 7.00pm every Wednesday & Saturday night (6.30 in Winter) (or every night in school holidays) weather permitting, in the open grassed area near the petrol bowsers, so bring along your chairs & a blanket !! If it does happen to rain we show the movie in our Events Room.
Before going to the movie why not have a close look at the Bettongs. They will be over at the bird feeding area cleaning up the seed that the birds have left behind. These little marsupials are the smallest of their kind and only come out at night time.
There are a variety of walks to suit all levels of fitness. Take the time to see the abundant fauna & flora that our region has to offer.
Lake Cania or Cania Dam as some call it, is well stocked with a variety of fish including Bass, Saratoga, Silver Perch & Yellow Belly.
