BIG4 Sunshine South West Rocks launches special seniors’ rate & activities program

 BIG4 Sunshine South West Rocks has launched a special seniors’ rate and a range of fun, interactive activities for mature travelers planning to discover the beautiful NSW mid north coast region.

Seniors travelling in a motor home or with a caravan have access to a powered site for as little as $36 a night, year round. Special rates apply for cabins as well.

While the Holiday Park is renowned for its family-friendly attractions and activities during school holiday periods, the BIG4 is particularly popular with senior travelers outside the holiday periods, and for the 2017 winter period has put in place a number of special activities with an emphasis on community and discovery for seniors. These include:

– Monthly afternoon teas with one of the Park’s longest residents, Elizabeth Holden, a Ngaku Elder of the Dunghutti Nation, who shares stories of her life growing up in the region over the past 55 years;

– Hunt around the Rocks: which revives the popular treasure hunt concept, where people discover the region’s most famous landmarks – such as Smoky Cape Lighthouse and historic Trial Bay Gaol;

– Activities such as fishing, canoeing, kayaking, windsurfing and stand up paddle boarding are available on the adjacent Macleay River, and on the beautiful Trial Bay;

– Dining at The Full Circle Eatery – local fresh fish is a speciality & fully licensed so there is no need to drive the Motorhome at night anywhere – the restaurant is just a short stroll from the camping sites;

– Daily morning tea at the Camp Kitchen, with ‘cake days’ on Wednesday

– Recommending the best spot to enjoy one of the rarest sites on the east coast – sunset over the sea. The headland above Trial Bay Beach offers the opportunity to enjoy a drink while watching the sun go down over the gleaming waters – a very special attraction.

BIG4 Sunshine owner, Tony Mayne, says that the new seniors program aimed to add a genuine community aspect to the travelling experience.

“The greatest attraction of travel is meeting new people with kindred spirits,” he said. “The best way to discover a region is through talking, interacting and sharing stories with locals. We provide that opportunity, while also providing fun ways to experience the destination.

“People growing up in the 1960’s and 1970’s loved car treasure hunts, so we’ve revived that concept, along with providing opportunities to get to know other members staying both short term and long term in the Park.

“South West Rocks is a very popular stop for travellers heading up the East Coast, but with these new activities in place we are hoping that seniors will choose to stay a little longer in our beautiful part of Australia.”

BIG4 Sunshine provides a complete holiday experience, with high-class facilities, friendly kangaroos and cheeky Kookaburras, fresh food and a wide range of activities available year-round. The town of South West Rocks lies halfway between Sydney & Brisbane on the legendary Pacific Coast.
