This is a caravan park? The totally underrated Lake Argyle Caravan Park, in the Kimberley region, has made its first appearance in our awards – and though the facilities are pretty top-notch here, we’re fairly certain it’s all about that pool and its never-ending views.

Tied second-placers, Byron Bay’s North Coast Holiday Parks Clarkes Beach and Airlie Beach’s Big4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort, have long competed for first place, so it’s a surprise to see them both toppled by our newcomer. Greater awareness of the Kimberley, it seems, has people uncovering more of her secrets.
