Ocean Beach Holiday Park is constantly striving to improve its accommodation and facilities for their guests. In doing this, our hard work has paid off and we have been awarded with various recognitions.
We are the proud holder of a Silver Gumnut Award
- the second level of the Caravan and Camping Industry's Eco Program.
The Caravan and Camping Industry take their environmental responsibility very seriously – we want to be part of the solution, not the problem. Holiday and tourist parks are an important part of the community and we want to ensure that our park stays that way.
Participating in the Gumnut Award program means that our business is working towards being a responsible tourism operator through environmentally and socially responsible management policies and practices. You can read more about the Gumnut Award program by visiting www.gumnutawards.com.au
Some of our Gumnut Award work is easy to see but most is not - the majority of efforts to reduce our footprint comes through changes in the way we do things, the products we use and services we engage.
Prior to achieving our Bronze Gumnut Award, we completed a training program that ensured we received information and education to help meet the obligations of membership.
In order to achieve the Silver Gumnut Award, we developed and implemented a comprehensive Environmental Management Plan (EMP), that will guide us in achieving our sustainability goals. The EMP was independently assessed by sustainability professionals and includes actions in the following categories.
NSW's #1 family-friendly Holiday Park in 2011!

Categories included activities for kids, staff hospitality, accommodation, location, safety and family fun.
Ocean Beach Holiday Park Manager, Vanessa Fordyce, says the popular Umina Beach landmark ticks all the boxes because it offers exceptional holiday facilities at a price that is affordable to most Australian families.
