Have your say

AUSTRALIA'S newest holiday park has welcomed its first guests.

Overlooking Georges Bay and just minutes from the Bay of Fires in Tasmania, the $10m NRMA St Helens Waterfront Holiday Park offers 26 cabins and 45 powered ensuite and camping sites, a camp kitchen, recreation room, BBQ, laundry and playground.

Managers Ryan and Sally Pendergast were excited to officially open their doors to the public after years of hard work and long days.

"We're proud to be able to build a brand new park in a fantastic location like St Helens," they said.

"It has been custom designed and built and we've made sure it is unique and that it differentiates itself from the rest of the market."

The park's restaurant and function centre has been named Parkside, recognising the fact that it stands on the site of the former Parkside Caravan Park.

It is believed to be the first NRMA park in Australia to be both independently owned and independently managed.

NRMA Parks and Resorts chief executive Paul Davies said the company hoped to bring more tourism dollars to the small communities supporting the parks.

"Australia has some of the world's best tourist destinations so it's a no-brainer that we want to encourage more people to holiday locally," he said.

"Regional tourism is at the heart of our business, particularly our holiday parks. We do well when regional areas like St Helens thrive."

Mr Davies said tourism was not just about the traveller.

"It's about the communities they visit," he explained.

"Regional communities offer unique experiences for domestic and international travellers. Tourism produces flow on benefits for these communities."

The NRMA is now regarded as one of Australia’s largest tourism providers with a portfolio valued at over $800 million.

It is also Australia's second-largest owner and operators of holiday parks with a stable of 40 parks nationwide and further expansion expected in the coming months.
