BIG4 Ad­ven­ture Whit­sun­day co-owner Greg McKin­non de­scribed win­ning gold in the ‘Car­a­van and Hol­i­day Parks’ cat­e­gory at the Queens­land Tourism Awards in Brisbane on Fri­day night as “hum­bling”.

“We are just a small fam­ily run busi­ness and we have built our car­a­van park up from a half star property to be­ing (a) leader in our in­dus­try over the past 22 years,” he said.

“(And) it is hum­bling to be in the com­pany of the other 29 cat­e­gory win­ners and all the fi­nal­ists.”

Mr McKin­non said the el­e­ments that com­bined to achieve this high­est of in­dus­try hon­ours for the state, in­cluded con­sis­tent qual­ity ser­vice, a con­certed cus­tomer fo­cus, con­tin­ual in­no­va­tion and a com­mit­ment to de­liver a tra­di­tional Aus­tralian fam­ily hol­i­day ex­pe­ri­ence.

“The se­cret to our suc­cess is lots of hard work, pas­sion, great team­work and a daily fo- cus on cre­at­ing a spe­cial tourism ex­pe­ri­ence,” he said.

“The Queens­land Tourism Awards cel­e­brate the very best Queens­land has to of­fer and we are proud to be a part of this in­dus­try, and de­liv­er­ing a fan­tas­tic Aus­tralian tourism prod­uct.

“We ex­tend our con­grat­u­la­tions to all the other nom­i­nees, fi­nal­ists and win­ners who put in the hard yards ev­ery day.”

Con­stantly up­grad­ing the parks fa­cil­i­ties and ser­vices is also a pri­or­ity for the team at BIG4 Ad­ven­ture Whit­sun­day.

The Palm House, a mul­ti­pur­pose func­tion venue sur­rounded by trop­i­cal gar­dens is the new­est in­no­va­tion at the re­sort and makes it eas­ier for guests to stay, meet or cel­e­brate a spe­cial event all in one lo­ca­tion.

This year the venue even played host to the lo­cal tourism awards, trans­form­ing from a for­mal cer­e­mo­nial venue to a 70’s disco hall through­out the night.

WIN­NERS ARE GRIN­NERS: BIG4 Ad­ven­ture Whit­sun­day Re­sort own­ers enjoy their award.
