Northern Territory’s BIG4 Hidden Valley Holiday Park Expands: 70 New Sites To Boost Upcoming Tourist Season

The BIG4 Hidden Valley Holiday Park in Darwin, Northern Territory (NT), has recently expanded its offerings with the addition of 70 new caravan and camping sites, according to a Caravan Industry Association of Australia press release.

This expansion, which increases the park’s capacity to over 300 sites, was made possible through the Federal Government Caravan Infrastructure Grant. Park Director Antony Wiesener highlighted the significance of this funding, emphasizing its contribution to the caravan industry’s success in the region. 

“Darwin is extremely busy in the winter months, and it can be hard for tourists to find quality accommodation. This grant will make it easier for tourists to visit the great city of Darwin. We would not have been able to create the extra sites without the funding. It’s a win for us, for Darwin, and, most importantly, local tourism. Grants such as these are an integral part of the domestic tourism industry as most providers in the NT are small companies battling the ever-increasing costs of living,” Wiesener said, as quoted in the press release.

The funding is seen as a crucial support for the local tourism industry, particularly as many providers in the Northern Territory are small businesses grappling with rising living costs. The BIG4 Hidden Valley received $50,000 from the $10 million caravan park grant program, with the condition of matching the Federal Government’s contribution. 

“Caravan parks are a very popular choice of accommodation in the Territory—providing great options for families, budget-conscious travelers, and travelers who want to get off the beaten track and explore everything the top end offers,” Federal Member for Solomon Luke Goslin said.

This funding is aimed at developing new sites and enhancing the park’s ambiance and beauty through initiatives such as planting new trees. 

“This funding will not only support the BIG4 Hidden Valley Holiday Park in Berrimah, but it will also deliver economic benefits for our community by encouraging more of our interstate mates and international visitors to come and stay,” Goslin added.

Stuart Lamont, chief executive officer of the Caravan Industry Association of Australia, expressed gratitude towards the Albanese Government and Austrade for their commitment to regional tourism through infrastructure funding. 

“Caravan parks are the lifeblood of many rural and regional communities, and the Federal Government’s support to see infrastructure improvement across the caravan park sector will provide better experiences, increased facilities for those with accessibility needs, and greater capacity so more Australians can get out and enjoy the very best that Australian has to offer,” Lamont said.
