BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort has once again been awarded top honours, winning gold in the Whitsunday Tourism Awards category “Caravan and Holiday Parks”, as well as the coveted “People’s Choice Award” at the gala industry awards last night.
Proudly owned by the McKinnon family for 25 years, the family have worked consistently over this time to develop the park and create a nationally recognised holiday resort in Airlie Beach with extensive facilities, a choice of quality accommodation and a friendly environment for holiday makers set amongst 10 hectares of beautiful tropical gardens.
Owner Greg McKinnon said, “We are incredibly excited to have won both of these awards. The Caravan and Holiday Parks win reflects the offerings of our product, our ongoing development and our customer service, while the People’s Choice Award was won based on voting from our guests and industry colleagues. The recognition is a testament to our team and our product, and we couldn’t be any prouder.”
General Manager, Kim Thomas, who attended the event with staff said, “These two awards are the result of great investment decisions by the McKinnon family which have enabled us to grow our business. Our staff are very deserving of this award, as when our guests have a great stay with us and spread the word, a big part of that is their experience with our staff.”
Over the years, the McKinnon family have been passionate about continually reinvesting in the business in order to offer the ultimate Whitsunday mainland holiday resort. Last year eight new Deluxe Studios were added to the accommodation mix, and more recently another two 2 Bedroom Premium Cottages. The most recent highly anticipated development in the past year, however, was the opening of the resort’s brand new 13 slide waterslide park at a private investment cost of $1.6 million.
“We aim to continually improve facilities and services while maintaining a focus on offering a home-grown holiday that reflects the easy and enjoyable Australian lifestyle. With the new waterslide park, BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort offers the ideal family holiday with so much to do within the resort, while being located in one of the most beautiful destinations in Australia,” said Mr Thomas.
