Multi-purpose venue at BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort
BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort will soon have a brand new multi-purpose conference and meeting venue after receiving a grant through the Tourism Industry Regional Development Fund (TIRF). The recent approval of a $250,000 grant will enable the award-winning resort to enhance their current Airlie Beach Accommodation and meeting room and build a new facility with multiple spaces for functions, kids’ activities, guest programs and conferences catering for 30 to 100 guests.
Coming on top of winning the Queensland and Australian Tourism Awards for best “Tourist and Caravan Park” the McKinnon family is thrilled to be given this opportunity to develop their facility and contribute to the overall growth of the tourism industry in the Whitsunday region.
BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort owner Greg McKinnon said “we are extremely excited that this grant will enable us to move quickly and develop something that was just at conceptual stage. Having received the only grant in the Whitsunday region we are keen to get the project underway and improve the groups and conference facilities for the Whitsundays. The development is very much in line with our future marketing strategy and complements the markets we are already targeting.”
BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday currently caters for families, school groups and relaxed business meetings and the new facility, which is projected to be completed by mid-2014, will improve the offering and increase capacity. “The new meeting spaces will provide more options with all-season rooms for our in-house activities and also allow us to have greater flexibility with the workshops and school holiday programs”, said co-owner Naomi McKinnon. The resort already has an extensive annual calendar of creative workshops, Kid’s Club, Toddler Time and special seasonal and school holiday activities. Dedicated Kids Activity Co-ordinators and an Event Manager ensure that guests, whether they are families, school groups or conference delegates, are met with a raft of well-organised activities.
The award-winning resort offers self-catering accommodation in Airlie Beach and an extensive range of quality facilities and services, gorgeous cabins and friendly, helpful staff. Set amongst 26 acres of lush tropical gardens the resort caters for a variety of budgets and tastes with a wide range of accommodation options from camping and caravanning sites to designer decorated Luxury Three Bedroom Condos. On top of the everyday activities there are organised pool-side parties, outdoor movies, family trivia nights and plenty of socialising for everyone. It is a vibrant, family orientated resort which captures the essence of the relaxed Queensland lifestyle.
