The team at Copeton Waters is all smiles this morning after being named Best Holiday Park Inland with more than 100 sites last night at the 2016 CCIA (Caravan & Camping Industry Association) / MHIA (Manufactured, Housing Industry Association) Awards of Excellence.
The CCIA is the top national body for the caravanning and camping industry in Australia. The award recognises outstanding business performance and improvements in NSW caravan, camping and holiday parks over the last year.
Inland Waters Holiday Parks (IWHP) Copeton Waters Manager Dave Allan said after being a finalist at the awards last year it was music to his team’s ears to hear that their park had won the top honour this time around.
“It is such an honour to be recognised before your industry peers and I can’t thank my amazing team enough for the great work they do every day to ensure the visitor experience is the best it can be,” Mr Allan said. “Copeton Waters really epitomises the quintessential Australian holiday and we work hard to make sure that people have great experiences when they visit.”
The NSW Crown Holiday Parks Trust (NSWCHPT) manages 35 holiday parks and boutique accommodation, including Copeton Waters, across iconic Crown land locations in north, south and inland NSW.
Three other holiday parks managed by NSWCHPT which were also finalists for the highly competitive awards last night included:

- North Coast Holiday Parks Evans Head, a finalist in the category of Best Holiday Park North Coast (More than 100 sites)
- North Coast Holiday Parks North Beach, a finalist in the category of Best Holiday Park North Coast (Less than 100 sites)
NSWCHPT CEO, Steve Edmonds said the Trust was proud to have four parks from the group represented at the awards from across such diverse regions in NSW.
“All of our holiday parks offer the perfect setting to create those great memories and I congratulate everyone for their efforts to become finalists,” Mr Edmonds said. “Congratulations also to Dave Allan and his team at Copeton Waters who are dedicated to ensuring future generations get to enjoy that perfect camping experience in an Australian outback setting.”
