Environmental Excellence Award for Holiday Parks Winner 2010

We were very pleased to be awarded the prestigious Environmental Excellence Award from the CCIA to our North Coast Holiday Parks Clarkes Beach in 2011.

The environmental factors in the development at the holiday park included removal of exotic species from the land and undertaking rehabilitative planting, using Australian made or renewable resources for building materials, insulation in roofs and walls of additional cabins, ecological design of cabins to promote ventilation and to minimise power and water usage, as well as maximising natural lighting, heating and cooling.

Judges were exceedingly impressed with North Coast Holiday Parks Clarkes Beach and the way that the park has taken passive design to a new level.
