Woodgate Beach caravan park: a gem

'Second largest investor in holiday parks'

NRMA snaps up 'hidden
treasure' in Queensland

Have your say

NRMA Parks & Resorts has acquired the picturesque 140-site Woodgate Beach Tourist Park in Queensland.

The news came just a week after it bought Bathurst Panorama Holiday Park in NSW.

The chain now owns and manages 38 parks nationwide, making it the country's second largest investor in holiday parks.

Chief executive Paul Davies said the Woodgate park, south of Bundaberg, was one of Australia's "hidden treasures" and was located along some of the country's most remarkable beachfronts.

The holiday destination is one of the largest in the region, offering a range of accommodation including 20 cabins and 140 powered sites.

Woodgate caravan parkThere is also the Serenity Cove Cafe, a convenience store, two amenities blocks, laundry facilities, camp kitchen, free electric barbecues, two dump points and free WiFi.

Popular with grey nomads and young families looking to enjoy an affordable beachside holiday, the park is surrounded by some of Australia’s most iconic flora and fauna.

"The NRMA's strategy of investing in Australia's domestic tourism industry is best encapsulated by this acquisition," Mr Davies said.

"We want to open this great country up to as many families and holidaymakers as possible because Australia is full of hidden treasures just like Woodgate Beach."

Mr Davies said the park's unique position made it one of the most popular destinations on the Fraser Coast and its location alongside the small Woodgate beachside community was ideal for families or couples wanting to unwind and relax.

"The NRMA is committed to investing in these local communities and we know that for every dollar spent at holiday parks like Woodgate Beach, $1.38 is invested in the local economy by visitors to the park," he added.

NRMA members can receive a 10 percent discount when staying at Woodgate Beach Tourist Park.
