The team from BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort in Airlie Beach was honoured to accept the silver award in the “Caravan and Holiday Park” category at the Australian Tourism Awards on Friday night.

Owners Greg and Naomi McKinnon were in Darwin to accept the award with other team members and operators from the Whitsundays. All State finalists and winners in this category of the Australian Tourism Awards were from the BIG4 Park franchise. Greg McKinnon said, “to be recognised nationally against so many other great parks is a big deal for us and gives us the daily motivation to keep at the top of our game.”

Mr McKinnon thanked staff saying, “our staff are passionate about our product and they help to give the resort its special atmosphere and bring return guests back year after year. We continually invest, enhance and upgrade facilities at our resort but we know it’s also the little things that count at the end of the day.”

BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort believes the qualities that help make them one of the best in Australia include delivering superior customer service, constantly focussing on the guest experience, empowering their staff and maintaining quality throughout the resort. BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort has been in the McKinnon family for 24 years and they have taken it from a ½ star property to a multi-award winning one through hard work, commitment, investment and a passion for the product and the industry.

The latest exciting development is a mega Waterslide Park which is due to open in April 2017. Other recent additions include an Animal Park, The Palm House, Palm Gardens and Palm Pavilion conference and wedding venues, more designer-decorated villas and the fun retro, beach culture Kombi van for party and event transport.
