Gold Coast tourist parks inducted into TripAdvisor ‘Hall of Fame’

THREE Gold Coast Tourist Parks have been inducted into TripAdvisor’s Hall of Fame for maintaining five years of outstanding service and excellent customer reviews.

For the second consecutive year, all eight of the city’s council-owned tourist parks were awarded the respected international travel site’s Certificate of Excellence.

But it’s the fifth year in a row that the Main Beach, Broadwater and Tallebudgera parks have been reocgnised, earning themselves a coveted spot on the site’s Hall of Fame.


More than 600 of the 651 reviews left on TripAdvisor’s site for the Broadwater park are positive.

It’s a similar story for the Tourist Park at Main Beach where ninety-one per cent of its 575 reviews are for “excellent” or “very good” service.

Acting Mayor Donna Gates said caravanning and camping holidays had been part of the Gold Coast experience for at least a century.

“We’re the best … it’s as simple as that,” the Acting Mayor said.

“The key is that we ensure the traditional family holiday fun we all grew up with is preserved through the in-house activities, and facilities, at all our parks.

“Council has recently endorsed a new strategic plan to outline future growth and investment in the City’s tourist park portfolio.

“Each of our parks is unique and the strategy involves preparing investment plans to ensure we capture the essence of individual parks and their offerings.

“South Stradbroke is unique across all our parks so I encourage anyone who hasn’t camped out with the wallabies to get to South Straddie and enjoy this magical spot.”
