THERE’S plenty of excitement and anticipation at the North Coast Hawks Nest Beach Holiday Park.
They’ve just been selected as a finalist for the 2017 Hunter Business Awards.
“We’re very excited,” Manager Tracey Moore told News Of The Area.
“The category is for under 20 staff which we fit, we’ve got awesome staff and fantastic service,” Tracey said.
While it’s the first time the Hawks Nest Park has been nominated, Tracey is no stranger to awards.
“It’s the first time for this park, we won the 2007 South Coast Tourism Awards for Best Park under 3 and a half stars and 4 stars, the 2013 Award for South Coast under 4 stars and we also won Best Small Business Operator for the entire South Coast in the same year.”
The Park and its proximity to Bennetts Beach is a great favourite with families over the Christmas holidays, full to overflowing with visitors.
“We have a 163 powered sites which cater for caravans, campervans, caravans and tents.”
Tracey added, “We also have 20 beautiful cabins.”
“We’re on 15 hectares and the whole park consists of 275 sites.”
“It’s great for the park but it’s also great for the area.”
Holiday Park staff are also thrilled.
“I just love all the people coming through the park,” Marissa Schutz said.
“Their first point of contact is us, and we need to make them happy.”
“We just want people to know how beautiful Hawks Nest is.”
The Hawks Nest Beach Holiday Park is one of 13 finalists in their category, the winner to be announced 31 August at a black tie dinner.
“We have a saying, sometimes people come from Sydney and you see the stress, and we say breathe, leave it on the other side of the bridge and it will be there on your way home,” Tracey said.
