Ingenia Holiday Parks Win Big at NSW Awards For Excellence

5 December 2023

Ingenia Holiday Parks has once again proven itself a heavyweight player in the tourism industry at the Caravanning and Camping Industry Association NSW Awards for Excellence 2023 hosted in Sydney.

Ingenia Holidays Soldiers Point took out top gong in the NSW Holiday Park Innovation Award category, with Ingenia Holidays One Mile Beach and Bonny Hills also named finalists in the Holiday Park of the Year (less than 100 sites) category.

Ingenia Holiday Parks Executive General Manager Tourism Matthew Young said the awards are a testament to Ingenia’s offering in the tourism industry.

“It’s an honour to have several of our Holiday Parks and staff recognised at this year’s CCIA Awards,” Mr Young said.

“The CCIA awards are all about celebrating and acknowledging the businesses and individuals that are ‘best in field’ for their respective categories and the recognition at this year’s ceremony is confirmation of the need for Ingenia’s innovative and high-quality offering to the tourism industry.

“Our highly innovative Soldiers Point Park offers visitors the opportunity to make the most of a bowling alley, which has received high commendation from many of our returned guests. It’s quite uncommon for a holiday park to offer an onsite bowling alley so we are thrilled to provide this service.

“The park also offers two highly unique accommodation options – the Airstreams and Treehouse duplex. Ingenia felt a need to try new accommodation offerings as many families were travelling in groups to split the cost of a holiday.

“We elevated duplexes near the village green space, with no other cabins in the park having the same elevated view of the park and surrounds.

“As for the airstreams, the idea came from watching the boom in rental caravans, where you pay to hire a caravan for a weekend or longer, setting it up yourself and packing it down when done.

“We wanted to take the hassle out of this experience by offering iconic vintage airstreams for the same caravanning experience. These airstreams have been an amazing talking point for the park, with guests asking daily for tours of fascinating vans,” he said.

Ingenia Holiday Parks continues to outperform and as many families grapple with rising living costs, affordable domestic travel will be a key beneficiary.

“The increase in cost-of-living expenses should not prevent families from enjoying unforgettable holidays and memorable road trips year-round,” Mr Young said.

“Our Holiday Parks in NSW and across the nation continue to generate strong demand, offering fun and value-packed ways for families to enjoy a relaxed resort style holiday all year round without necessarily having added expenses like airfares, and access to enjoy a range of activities from tennis courts to water parks.”

Ingenia employees Caitlyn Hargreaves and Rob Richings were also recognised for their ongoing dedication to their work at Ingenia Holidays Bonny Hills and Ingenia Holiday Parks Hunter Valley.
