The new Canberra Tourist Park near EPIC in Canberra’s north opened today (22 July). The site includes a new 73-site caravan park, 154 rooms accommodating 408 guests and private accommodation for coach drivers.

Canberra Park manager David Grigg said the new site would complement EPIC as it is perfectly situated for people to visit national attractions, wineries, cafes and restaurants, being just 6 km from the city centre.

“The aim is to have a property as far as location goes that would actually bring people to Canberra, as opposed to them going through,” he said.

The park can be accessed from the Federal Highway and is located at the Old Well Station Road intersection in Gungahlin. The park is within walking distance of the light-rail and the free Cultural Loop shuttle bus.

Drive through and back-in sites are all available at the Tourist Park while fire pit areas, modern camping facilities and a dump point are also on site.

Mr Grigg said this would be a step up in the level of caravan park offering, with high-end amenities and facilities, and sites large enough to take the longer rigs.

Is it Pet Friendly?

Can you pitch a tent here instead of a caravan? Are there discounts if you stay 12 months or more at a powered site?

Wouldn’t take much to be better than EPIC.

Better looking camp kitchen than many that I've used.

I thought it was a prison. Very disappointing.

Is there a footpath between this campground and the tram?

    JC JC 6:15 pm 22 Jul 20

    No. But why would it need one? It’s not that close to a tram stop.

    And for what it’s worth there is a footpath to the nearest bus stop on Aspinal Street.

    ChrisinTurner ChrisinTurner 4:52 pm 23 Jul 20

    56 minutes by bus to City. 30 minutes by walking to the tram, except there is no footpath.

The one at Symonston is an abomination. I’d be scared staying there

    Although I often drive past it, I've never driven inside the gates. Why, what's it like? If you can make a comment like that, you must know.
