Have your say
DISCOVERY Parks, which operates over 60
caravan, lifestyle and tourist parks around the
country, is feeling starstruck.
Its latest park, opened just weeks ago on Rottnest Island in
Western Australia, has already attracted some
famous faces, including Hollywood's Chris Hemsworth and
They dropped in for a holiday and were among the first guests to stay in
one of the resort's superior family glamping tents.
Other Hollywood heavyweight Matt Damon visited for the day and Boomtown
Rats lead singer Sir Bob Geldof also made an appearance.
Nestled behind the dunes of famous Pinky Beach, the 2.8 hectare holiday
hideaway offers 83 fully furnished eco-tents, resort pool and pool bar to
complement its centrepiece, Pinky's Beach Club.
General manager Andy Cleverley described it as a "star-studded" beginning
for the resort.
"It was a huge privilege to host Chris, Elsa and the kids at the resort,"
"The Hemsworth family was able to soak up the sand and sun from one of the
most spectacular coastal locations in WA – Pinky Beach
‒ and experience a true Australian holiday from the luxury of one
of our beautifully appointed eco-tents."
During his stay, Chris was snapped with the island's resident friendly
marsupial ... the quokka.
In recent years the animal has become a social media star, thanks partly
to other famous personalities capturing their own photos of the macropod
during their visits to the island, including Hugh Jackman, Roger Federer,
Margot Robbie and now Chris Hemsworth.
