Stockton Beach Holiday Park is excited to have been announced as a finalist in the caravan and camping category for this year’s NSW Tourism Awards.
The state awards celebrate and acknowledge tourism businesses that have demonstrated outstanding achievement and success throughout the year. The awards are a submission and inspection based program, focusing on tourism excellence, business planning, customer service, marketing and sustainability. A spokesperson from Newcastle City Council said, “being recognised within the industry by being announced a finalist in the NSW Tourism Awards is an excellent achievement for Stockton Beach Holiday Park. “It is a testament to the hard work put in by the Park Management and staff as well as Councils commitment to continuously improving facilities at the park including 16 new Villas, new Barbeque areas, beach access boardwalk and a new playground all coming on line over the past 12 months.”
Winners will be announced at a gala event in Sydney on November 26, 2015. Stockton Beach Holiday Park was also recognised with a commendation at the CCIA NSW Awards (Caravan and Camping Industry Association), in October in the Best Holiday Park North Coast category. The awards recognise businesses and employees that demonstrate best practice in customer service, product offerings, environmental initiatives and business success among the state’s caravan and camping industry.
Stockton Beach Holiday Park is a 3.5 star property situated along 32 kilometres of white sand, stretching from Stockton to Anna Bay, in the New South Wales Hunter region. With the longest beach at the front doorstep, the largest sand dunes in the southern hemisphere at the back, and ships passing by the largest coal port in the world, the park’s unique attractions are begging to be explored.
The park’s accommodation includes two and three-bedroom villas, as well as 129 ensuite, powered and unpowered sites for caravanning and camping. Park facilities include modern amenities, spacious camp kitchen, five barbecue areas, laundry and two playgrounds to keep the kids entertained. Guests can explore the Hunter region, and all it has to offer from exploring the dunes by 4WD, taking a self guided cycle tour through Newcastle, or spending the day at the beach.

Kids’ paradise Stockton Beach Holiday Park has proudly been awarded 9th place for New South Wales in the annual Holidays with Kids readers’ choice awards.
The holiday park is managed by leading tourism park operator Australian Tourist Park Management (ATPM) on behalf of Newcastle City Council and is the perfect destination for families with children of any age.
This sentiment is echoed by ATPM CEO Mark Manteit who said that ‘this award is reflective of our dedication to creating memorable holiday experiences for our guests and their families. Our guests always tell us how much kids love swinging around on the playgrounds and coming back from a swim at the patrolled beach to participate in the Kids’ Activities program or watch a movie on the big screen. This, combined with our wonderful location on 32 kilometres of uninterrupted white sand beaches, and proximity to Newcastle is the reason our guests come back year after year’.
ATPM, the team at Stockton Beach, and Newcastle City Council are overjoyed and honoured to be recognised with this award, and wish to thank all of the loyal guests and wider community who took the time to vote.
Holidays with Kids is established as the industry leader for providing insight into family travel options, and only feature holiday parks that will offer exceptional experiences and are great value for money. The category of ‘Best Holiday Park’ is for parks that excel in offering family-friendly facilities, accommodation and, most importantly, overall experience.
The list of award winners will be live for the next 12 months on their website, and the winners will also be published in the annual edition of Holidays with Kids Caravan, Camping, Holiday Parks and 4WD magazine.
The park is owned by the City of Newcastle and managed by award-winning group Australian Tourist Park Management (ATPM).
ATPM’s Chief Executive Officer John Tilton said he is pleased the park has been recognised.
“Our overall goal at Stockton Beach Holiday Park is to ensure all guests leave with a memorable holiday experience and the desire to visit again,” he said.
“We are certainly very pleased that guests are enjoying themselves at the park, based on the positive reviews they are leaving on TripAdvisor.”
The park is ranked number one in its TripAdvisor category (out of 19), with an average rating of 4-stars.
Council’s Commercial Property and Projects Coordinator David Stanke said the park’s standout features include its location on Stockton Beach and its many family-friendly offerings.
“New luxury cabins, free kids activities during school holidays and two kids playgrounds are all available for families to enjoy, along with the convenience of camp kitchens, BBQs and free wireless internet,” he said.
To qualify for the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, businesses must maintain an overall rating of four or higher, out of a possible five. The volume of reviews received within the last 12 months is also considered. Only approximately 10 per cent of accommodations listed on TripAdvisor receive this prestigious award.
