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.
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.
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."
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.
