Award-winning BIG4 Peppermint Park will host WA Deputy Premier and Tourism Minister, the Honourable Dr Kim Hames, on Valentine’s Day (Saturday 14 February) this year to celebrate the Park’s 10 year anniversary.
Park guests are invited to join staff and tourism officials to enjoy a morning of activities at the Busselton Park, located at 97 Caves Road, Busselton with music from the Busselton Brass band and children’s entertainment, plus a free sausage sizzle to mark the occasion.
Newly redeveloped & opened by the Robins Family in 2005 as ‘Peppermint Park Eco Village’, the family made the decision to join the BIG4 group in 2006 to boost the Park’s prominence and help them to achieve and share their vision to be the best nature-focused holiday park in Australia. Over the years, the family has created a unique holiday destination dedicated to protecting the surrounding environment, and is fully accredited by Eco Tourism Australia. It has also won the WA Tourism Award for three years in a row which is an incredible achievement.
The Park boasts an impressive range of spacious van sites, eco-cabins and studio apartments, as well as the range of high standard facilities you’d expect at a BIG4 Park including a half-size basketball court, a jumping pillow and two swimming pools – all located just 300m from Geographe Bay.
Managing Director of BIG4 Peppermint Park Craig Robins says:
“It’s been a tremendous ten years of growth and accomplishment. We’d like to pay special tribute to our park managers Catherine and Quentin Schofield, who have been instrumental to the Park’s success.
“As the Park is located next to a nature reserve and the Buayannup River channel, it’s always been important for us to protect the natural wildlife and fauna so we’re thrilled we’ve been able to share and offer this nature experience to our guests for a whole decade. Bring on the next ten years!”
CEO of BIG4 Holiday Parks Steve Wright says:
“BIG4 is extremely proud of BIG4 Peppermint Parks continued success. The Park has gained a huge amount of support from the community which has connected with the public’s desire to be able to do more for their environment. We are proud they are part of our Group and wish them as much success in the future.”
The Park features a wildlife information wall, Bugs and Frogs tours, regular talks from the Possum Centre to educate guests about the vulnerability of the Western Ringtail Possum.
The Park is also an advocate of “Nature Play” and does not have any electronic activities on site that take away from the children’s own imagination to discover and play in a safe outdoor environment.
