Deniliquin BIG4 Holiday Park has taken out gold at the 2014 Inland NSW Tourism Awards in the Tourist & Caravan Parks category for a fourth time.
Owners Frank and Lynda White accepted the award on Saturday at a gala presentation dinner held at the Griffith Ex-Servicemen’s Club.
BIG4 had taken out the same category for three consecutive years (2009-11) before taking a break from entering the awards for the past two years and opting to enter at state level directly.
In 2012, BIG4 was inducted into the Inland NSW Tourism Awards’ Hall of Fame.
‘‘This (2014) award recognises all the hard work of our staff; they put in lots of effort and it’s good to be rewarded,’’ Mr White said.
‘‘We were up against some parks from the Moama/Echuca region so it was good to have a win against these bigger centres.’’
Mr White said the judges praised BIG4 for its high-quality standards.
‘‘They recognised the professionalism we run the park with.
‘‘We work on so many aspects of policies and procedures, especially when it comes to staff training.’’
BIG4 employs eight casual and full time staff members, and even more during the park’s busy holiday periods.
Mr and Mrs White have managed the park for 13 years in partnership with Bruce and Glenys Catto of Sydney.
Last year BIG4 took out silver at the NSW Tourism Awards. In 2012 the park was awarded gold at the NSW Tourism Awards, progressing to win silver at the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards (National Awards).
Its other accolades include gold at the 2009 National Awards and bronze in 2010 and 2011 at the NSW Tourism Awards.
Their latest win sees BIG4 automatically entered into the NSW Tourism Awards, being held in Sydney on November 27.
