Mackay and Whitsunday Life
In a clean sweep this year, Queens Beach Tourist Village has taken out silver in the Caravan And Holiday Parks category.
Owner and operator Jennie Greer was ecstatic at the win.
“It doesn’t matter what colour the award is, we won, and it feels absolutely amazing. We’re over the moon.”
“Of course, this result is because of our amazing staff. We are proud of every single staff member,” Jennie said.
“This award is a testament to the care, dedication, and passion that our staff have, and who make the impact for guests and the park.”
Jennie and her husband Peter took on the park in January 2019 and have since been implanting upgrades and changes to the park, to ensure guest satisfaction and enjoyment.
This was a big part of their submission for the awards.
“We covered everything but particularly the improvements that we have made to the park. We are consistently looking at what can be improved and upgraded in the park,” she explained.
“We also shared our charity work that we have done, particularly with Bowen Country Women’s Association. Not only did our charity work have a great result, but we had a lot of fun doing it. We enjoy putting back into the community, and so many businesses got involved and had fun with us.
“But, if it wasn’t for the guests getting behind us, the charity work wouldn’t have been as successful.”
The park now turns their attention to the 2023 Grey Nomad Awards, where they have been successful for the past few years taking out the Best Grey Nomad Large Caravan Park award.
