The average Australian takes four weeks of annual leave per year, but this changed drastically when the pandemic hit in 2019. European summers, quick Bali trips and other overseas adventures were put on hold as the world stood at a standstill.
Fast forward through the bumpy navigation of a new way of post-pandemic life, and we’ve made it to 2023 (mostly) unscathed. The Australian Tourism industry, however, took an extreme hit.
A silver lining in the aftermath of the global pandemic produced a newfound appreciation for our country and all that we must discover right here on our doorstep. Australians far and wide have begun travelling again, and instead of booking long, expensive, and time-consuming international flights, they’re opting for the great Australian road trip and the flexibility and comfortability of Holiday Park accommodation.
Without getting too financial, the Australian dollar conversion rate will also contribute to an increase in international travellers making their way down under, offering support and adding to the rising occupancy numbers in the Holiday Park industry.
So, what are the benefits of staying in a Holiday Park and why is occupancy increasing?
The short of it is, budget.
In the aftermath of the past few years, holiday-goers are looking for a lower-cost escape and are finding this within Holiday Parks Australia-wide.
These parks offer proximity to idyllic locations and a range of accommodation choices for guests, including allotted caravan sites, ensuite sites, powered and non-powered camping sites, and the most popular, cabin stays.
A one-stop shop, parks offer ample activities for the kids, including games rooms, water play, and movie nights for the whole family and just that’s the start of the free fun.
You can find cheap eats from local eateries, food trucks and coffee vans – many parks have really levelled up their hospitality game to ensure they’re covering all bases for guests to eliminate the hassle of transport and additional costs to their stay.
While all of this is at the guest’s disposal, there is also the advantage and luxury of privacy and a sense of space to escape the hustle and bustle of the park itself within cabins. ModnPods modular pods have been engineered with double-glazed, tinted windows and doors to keep the noise out, and let you kick back and relax.
Additionally, all ModnPods are sustainably made to withstand high traffic occupancy, offer little to no maintenance, and a design that was thoughtfully created with the guest in mind.
