After taking out the top award three years in a row from 2010-12, Deniliquin BIG4 will again contest the Inland Tourism Awards.July 9, 2014 8:33am
Deniliquin’s BIG4 Holiday Park has again been named as a Riverina Regional Tourism finalist for the 2014 Inland Tourism Awards.
Owners Frank and Lynda White will contest the Tourist & Caravan Parks category.
In 2012, BIG4 was inducted into Inland’s Hall Of Fame for winning the section for three consecutive years and this is the first year they have participated in the awards since.
The local business has also progressed to the NSW Tourism Award finals five times.
Mr and Mrs White have been running the holiday park for 13 years, in partnership with Bruce and Glenys Catto of Sydney.
In this time they have rebuilt the park into a 4.5 star award-winning attraction.
‘‘We have been working hard on the facilities including our resort pool and water park,’’ Mr White said.
‘‘The pool is 25m long, meaning people can do laps and it has a beach area and water feature.
‘‘The water park has zero water depth which means kids and adults can use it; it’s suitable for people of all ages.
‘‘These complement all of the park’s other features; we’ve turned BIG4 into a resort style holiday park.’’
BIG4 employs eight casual and full time staff.
‘‘This is our first time back in two years (in the awards); it’s been great and is always good for Deni to receive recognition,’’ Mr White said.
‘‘The awards are good for our new staff who haven’t gone through the process before.’’
The winners will be announced at a gala presentation dinner at the Griffith Ex-Servicemen’s Club on Saturday, July 26.
