BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort
BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort

Started by four caravan park owners who met for dinner in Ballarat in the 1970s and were unified in a belief that “the whole is greater than the sum of its parks”, BIG4 Holiday Parks has grown to include more than 250 properties around Australia. Its brand hallmarks are quality accommodation and facilities, cleanliness, and excellence in customer service. All BIG4 parks are franchisees which are individually owned and operated, some by families and others by corporates such as NRMA Parks & Resorts and Ingenia Holidays. It’s developed three distinct park types to help guests determine which park best suits their holiday needs – Classic, Holiday, or Premier parks.
