“Occupancy levels at Council’s holiday parks across (the) peak (period) increased year on year by 3.1 percent in December and reached an incredible 87.9 percent average nightly occupancy in January 2024, with Halifax Holiday Park achieving an average nightly occupancy of 93 percent within the same period.

“With over 570 villas, cabins and caravan sites available across all of Council’s holiday parks, an estimated 2,500 guests can be accommodated each night in Port Stephens, being the largest tourist accommodation provider in the region,” he said.

The Tomaree Peninsula enjoyed high visitation during the summer holiday period, with parking space uptake and retail trade a good indication of positive economic impact from the busiest time of the year in and around the Bay area.
