BIG4 Emerald Beach Holiday Park Set to Sparkle under new GDG Management

Set on a stunning stretch of the northern NSW Coffs Coast just north of Coffs Harbour, BIG4 Emerald Beach Holiday Park has welcomed the Goodall Dineen Group (GDG) as the new Leaseholders and Operators.

Former owner-operators Kris and Schellea Fowler will be enjoying a long deserved sabbatical then concentrating on other projects after being hands-on in the park for more than 10 years.

Goodall Dineen Group Managing Director Terry Goodall, former CEO BIG4 Holiday Parks Australia, said that Emerald Beach Holiday Park has always been respected and admired within the industry and they welcomed the park to their growing portfolio and the opportunity to enhance and add value to the business.

“The Fowlers have done a fantastic job with Emerald Beach over the past 10 years and we are delighted that they chose GDG to continue their good work.  We look forward to providing a great experience for guests, regular and new, into the future,” said Terry.

“John and Karen Dineen and I have a passion for customer service and a vision to bring holiday parks into the mainstream of accommodation options. When people are planning a break we want them to consider a holiday park first. The Goodall Dineen Group team has some great ideas for Emerald Beach and plans to demonstrate how we can improve the overall guest experience and deliver a memorable short stay or extended holiday while building a strong platform for future growth”, said Terry.

The multi award winning Emerald Beach Holiday Park is the perfect destination for a family holiday, weekend getaway or family reunion. Half way between Sydney and Brisbane, it’s hidden away from the rest of the world while being surrounded by nature, wild life and the pristine Pacific Ocean. The striking Beachfront location offers crowd free surfing, swimming, fishing and long lazy walks along the beach, while back in the park you can sit and admire the Kangaroos, birds, possums, water lizards and echidnas. 

There is a wide range of self-contained cabin accommodation as well as caravan and camping sites to suit all budgets. Check the website and to book go to:  http://www.emeraldbeachholidaypark.com.au

Noosa River Caravan Park – Under New Management!

Back on Sydney soil after an interesting and hectic few weeks on site at our newest management site – Noosa River Caravan Park.  What a park, what a location!  Near the shopping and restaurants of Hastings Street yet looking out to the tranquil Noosa River.

It was great to be working side by side with all the new staff and management.  Karen and Robbie Mitchell are going to bring a great deal to our industry and a welcome to both and their newest team members, Brad, Deb and Lyn.

Huge contribution by the Transitional Team – John and Karen Dineen, Eloise Cross, Jessica Dineen and Dean and Carol Farnham.   Great to be working with a very effective and tourism orientated Council – the Sunshine Coast Regional Council and to meet up with some of the members at last weeks informal meeting with Tourism Noosa.   Other highlights:  Noosa Triathalon and a great weekend with the parents and kids from Camp Quality (Go Cossi!).  Thanks also to Steve and Allan for making us all smile – happy fifth wheeling my friends.  See you on your return trip – we will be ready for you this time!!!
