It seems holiday makers simply cannot get enough of NRMA Woodgate Beach Holiday Park.
The beachfront 3.6 hectare park is seemingly the jewel in the crown of NRMA’s caravan parks catalogue with a recent uptake of special holiday offers across its parks network identifying Woodgate as the most sought after.
Park manager Dean Beer holds a job that many would envy.
“We just keep building on the popularity of the park. We continue to provide avenues of accommodation that ensure visitors to the park can source the style of camping experience they want.”
Safari tents ultimate “glamping” experience
And NRMA Woodgate Beach Holiday Park does boast it all – including the newly opened safari tents, the ultimate in “glamping”.
“Yes,” said Dean, “the two safari tents are going exceptionally well. It’s a new initiative for us but they are extremely popular and able to accommodate four.”
Complete with kitchen, deck, barbecue and bath and with views of the water there’s not much left to desire.
Caravan and camping sites, beachfront villas and even two luxury holiday homes attached to the park offer accommodation options to suit every enquiry.
And the enquiries have kept coming.
“We are at capacity most weekends and our mid-week bookings have also been great,” Dean said.
“From now right through to the end of January bookings are very heavy. Obviously the pandemic has encouraged many people to seek a getaway from their homes and we are finding that a lot of our bookings are coming from locations close to the Bundaberg Region.”
New South Wales caravanners Peter and Janelle are first timers at NRMA Woodgate Beach Holiday Park.
“We usually head north but with the obstacle of restrictions we decided to try the park here at Woodgate.
“We travel with a couple of others and our trio has been here for over a month and we are loving it,” Janelle said.
“Two of us have found the golf course at Childers and have played there several times. It’s so well maintained and just a lovely course.”
Peter admitted being a reluctant user of caravan parks but was delighted with everything he found in the park and at Woodgate in general.
“Stroll across the road and you’ve got the ocean and an absolutely magnificent beach.
“I’m surprised at the numbers of dogs here in the park – there must be 60 at least but you never hear a sound. It’s wonderful,” he said.
“We really love the unspoiled nature of this park. It doesn’t need swimming pools or jumping castles. It’s perfect the way it is, presented in a beautiful natural environment.
“We are staying until the school holidays commence in September or when they kick us out,” he laughed.
“We will be back. We’ve already booked again for next year.”
