The more affordable campground and caravan park in Canberra
Southside Village is a large caravan park with cabins that’s in good proximity to a lot of the main attractions in Canberra. It can be an okay, affordable accommodation option for when you’re visiting the Australian capital with the main advantages of staying here being the low campsite cost and it’s location.
Southside Village has three main accommodation options, that being cabin, powered sites or non-powered, with the non-powered sites often being the most desirable and a lot of the time, the only option available.
The cabins are mainly filled with permanent residents and there are quite a few of them in the powered sites too. The powered sites are laid out in one long strip, next to the amenities block and in between the cabins, running parallel to them.
Right down the back of the caravan park, next to the highway is the non-powered section, which is a large patch of grass with some trees. The non-powered sites aren’t bad, although it’s quite loud due to the highway and it’s difficult to have privacy as the permanent residents seem to walk through there with and without their dogs at all hours of the day.
There’s a toilet block and coin laundry central to the cabins and powered camp sites which are kept very clean, although they’re on the older side of life.
Although the showers are kept clean and have decent pressure, once warmed up, each cubical is small without any bench space to place your items on.
Just near the amenities block is an enclosed kitchen with decent appliances, plenty of space and air conditioning. This area is also kept very clean, well maintained and in good working order. In the kitchen area is an air hockey table, free of charge, which can be a bit of fun.
