THE NRMA has bought the BIG4 Capricorn Palms Holiday Park
at the gateway to Queensland's iconic Capricorn Coast.
Situated just outside Yeppoon on Mulambin Beach, it has been renamed
the NRMA Capricorn Yeppoon Holiday Park.
The purchase brings the number of NRMA branded parks and resorts to 23,
with further expansion expected in coming months.
The park boasts waterslides, an amphitheatre for movie nights and a large
pool, while its location connects families to the Great Barrier Reef and
Great Keppel Island.
NRMA Parks and Resorts chief executive Paul Davies said that providing
families with quality holiday accommodation while boosting Australia’s
domestic tourism industry was behind the purchase.

"Our mission is to make the great Australian road trip experience more
enjoyable and accessible for everyone."

"The purchase directly aligns with the NRMA's vision of boosting local
tourism industries. We know that for every dollar spent at a holiday park,

Members of the NRMA and other auto clubs such as RACQ would be eligible
for a 10 percent discount on any stay under three nights, or stay for four
nights and only pay for three.
Mr Davies thought the year-round warm climate of the Capricorn Coast meant
the park provided the perfect base to explore the region.
"It's little wonder Mulambin Beach is said to be the most photographed
stretch of coastline in central Queensland," he said.
"Bushwalking, a ferry trip to Great Keppel Island, fishing along the
beach, relaxing on the sandy shore or getting amongst the fun of the
waterslides in the park are all fantastic family holiday experiences that
are available within the one great location.
