After another successful year, Halifax Holiday Park at Nelson Bay has been awarded silver in the Caravan & Holiday Parks category at the prestigious 2015 NSW Tourism Awards at Darling Harbour.
Halifax's award win follows on from a string of successes including last year's silver award at the NSW Tourism Awards and a gold win at the Qantaslink 2014 Hunter & Central Coast Tourism Awards.
Port Stephens Council's Manager of Corporate Services, Carmel Foster, attended the ceremony with Holiday Parks Business Development Manager Rebecca Smith.
"Strong guest satisfaction is a primary driver of Halifax Holiday Park's success," Ms Smith said.
"Our guest reviews on Trip Advisor and from our own guest surveys are consistently positive. We have very high levels of repeat guest bookings and bookings through word of mouth referrals that continue to grow each year. This has come about through the dedicated efforts of our wonderful team of staff.
"We actively seek ideas for how we can further improve the business. Entering the prestigious NSW Tourism Awards is just one of the avenues we use to push ourselves to aim higher and enhance our guest experience. Continual improvement is an ongoing area of focus for us."
Ms Foster said there were also plans afoot for improvement at the park.
"We are really proud of the results that have been achieved and with some great development plans for Halifax Holiday Park over the next few years, there's an even brighter future to look forward to," she said.
The NSW Tourism Awards are presented by Tourism Industry, a division of the NSW Business Chamber and proudly supported by Destination NSW. Now in their 26th year, the Awards celebrate and acknowledge tourism businesses that have demonstrated outstanding achievement and success throughout the year. The Awards are a submission and inspection-based program and provide the opportunity to publicly recognise and showcase the State’s finest tourism operators.
