Why holiday parks are still a great option for a holiday

Why holiday parks are still a great option for a holiday

Summer may be over, but a quick look at this weekend’s forecast proves there’s still a bit of warmth to be enjoyed across Australia.

Many people have fond memories of going to holiday parks as children. It seemed to be more of a thing in the decades gone by. But, they don’t have to be a distant memory according to Peter Chapman, General Manager of Marketing and Sales at Reflections Holiday Park.

Many are often quick to book a flight to the next city and hotel on their list, but haven’t yet explored the quality destinations right on their doorstep with an exciting holiday park at every corner.

Chapman told Travel Weekly that many holiday parks are family friendly, ideal for families as they offer a range of activities and facilities that cater to all age groups. You can enjoy the stunning beaches and scenic walks and also spend quality time together visiting nearby restaurants that are often hidden gems with their own charm.

Reflections Holiday Parks has added some new glamping tents that are perfect for families wanting to try something new compared to the average hotel room that doesn’t have a lot going on.

From Bonny Hills, Jimmy’s Beach and Seals Rock on the Mid Coast to Lennox Head and Mylestom, these glamping precincts are beautiful stays. Fully equipped kitchens and comfy beds don’t tend to be attached to camping nor do TV’s or private bathrooms, but these come with just that and all the luxuries of a hotel.

If your furry friend is not one to part with even for a short holiday, then holiday parks often cater for dog friendly accommodation and even activities to include them in too. Reflections Holiday Parks has 28 dog friendly parks in NSW.

Seeking dog friendly accommodation doesn’t mean you have to reduce your own holiday standards. Holiday parks offer stunning deluxe cabins in Bonny Hills and Ballina parks to name a few. These cabins contain the same stunning interiors that allow your furry companion to fit right in.

Many travellers are opting for holiday parks due to the value for money they offer. Hotel and flight prices are continuing to increase however holiday parks offer a range of accommodation options to suit different budgets, Chapman said.

Whether you opt for self-catering options or eating out in the local restaurants you’re not tied to any one option. Reflections Holiday Parks has a range of accommodation types including Deluxe Cabins, Premium Villas, Tiny Homes, Glamping Tents and Powered and Unpowered sites for caravan owners or hirers.

Holiday parks often pick the most stunning and breathtaking locations. They’re something that many young adults might have turned their nose up at and never considered holidaying in a holiday park in the past, but more and more we’re seeing younger travellers staying at our parks.

Chapman said “holiday parks put a lot of effort into ensuring their onsite activities, facilities and communal areas are top notch to ensure the most enjoyable stay with friends and even grab those Instagram worthy shots that many might have thought they wouldn’t get at a holiday park.

“Another brilliant reason why you can opt for a holiday park is due to their care for the environment and lands they overtake, giving back to the community. As a certified Social Enterprise, Reflections Holiday Parks welcomed 2 million guests, contributing $83.2 million in economic value to New South Wales,” he said.
