Holiday park improvements aim to attract more tourists

ALL four Coffs Coast Holiday Parks have undergone 'significant' upgrades, Coffs Harbour City Council announced this week.

Jason Bailey, Manager Holiday Parks and Reserve, said the latest additions and refurbishments have been made to ensure the facilities continue to meet market demands.

"Council's holiday parks are fully self-funded and profits are reinvested into community facilities within the Crown Reserve system so it's important that the business operations remain viable and continue to meet market demands," he said.

"Being able to offer a wider range of accommodation options and guest facilities means we can continue to offer products that the market expects."
