RAC Cervantes Holiday Park

RAC Cervantes Holiday Park is an easy two-hour drive north from Perth. It’s an ideal weekend getaway for families and midweek for seniors.

Take your own caravan, campervan, tent or book into the RAC villas. Three bedroom and two-bedroom villas are available including an accessible cabin, which can sleep up to six people. These do come at a cost though, with the three-bedroom villas starting at $285 per night and the two-bedroom villas from $235. Prices go up horrendously at Christmas and school holidays with a three-bedroom villa costing $440 per night. RAC members get a 20% discount.

We spent one night in the Cervantes park in September. A powered site for our campervan cost $39.95 that included our RAC discount. The park has 136 powered sites.

The holiday park has recently had a makeover. A nature playground, swimming pool and BBQ areas are all very close to the sites. There is also a recreation room, which has a pool table and table tennis tables as well as large-screen TVs. For the fishermen, a fish cleaning area is also available.

The powered sites were more than adequate for our campervan and for our friends who were towing a trailer. As there were four couples, the receptionist gave us four sites together, which meant we could congregate in the middle. The female members of our Seniors Group headed for the on-site café, Seashells while the men powered up the vans and put up the tents.

Seashells is a very nice café overlooking the beach and close to the children’s playground. It is open from 8am until 2:30pm, serving breakfast, lunch, coffee and cake. There is a small store in this area that also houses RAC reception.

We opted to eat in the camp kitchen for dinner and breakfast utilising the exceptionally clean BBQs and the stovetops. There is plenty of room in the kitchen but eat earlier if you are in a big group as the tables are in high demand at dinnertime. There are four sinks so washing-up is easy. A microwave, toaster and kettle as well as a large fridge is available in the kitchen. Laundry facilities are provided. Complimentary wifi is a bonus but be aware that there are some black spots in the park.

The ablutions block was very clean although we felt it could have been better designed. There are enough toilets and sinks. The showers are fine but as the floor seems to be on a slight slope, the person in the last shower has to deal with soap and a lot of water coming from the other showers. The facilities are accessible for patrons with wheelchairs or mobility issues.

Check-in is at 2pm although we checked in just after 11am without a problem but checkout at 10am is strictly enforced. Patrons are requested to restrict noise between 10pm and 6am, smoking is not permitted but pets are – on payment of a bond.

We would definitely recommend the RAC Cervantes Holiday Park for a weekend or midweek break. It is very close to the Pinnacles and Jurien Bay if you want to show visitors some unique WA sights. Just try to avoid Christmas and school holidays!
