Tallebudgera Creek Tourist Park is a customer-focused haven on Queensland’s southern Gold Coast.
Considered a glamour strip, the playground that is Queensland’s Gold Coast has long drawn crowds to a superb seaside with a fast-paced party atmosphere.
Over the years, the quieter southern end of the Gold Coast, including Burleigh Heads, Tallebudgera, Palm Beach, Currumbin and Coolangatta on the Queensland-NSW border, has become the forgotten cousin to glitzy Surfers Paradise and the adrenalin-pumping theme park precinct at the northern Coomera-Oxenford gateway.
Nonetheless, at roughly an hour’s drive from Brisbane, the southern coast’s Tallebudgera Creek Tourist Park is a beaut haven for a restful weekend or long-stay holiday. So it is little wonder the park picked up the Turu award for Queensland.
Tallebudgera Creek Tourist Park managers Donna and Clarrie Harrison live and love the busy lifestyle synonymous with running a caravan park located on a tourist strip.
“Gold Coast Tourist Parks has seven parks and we have managed a number of these parks over the years, with this one being the biggest and busiest in our experience,” Donna said.
While there are any number of reasons for the park’s popularity, among them is the fact that Tallebudgera Creek Tourist Park proffers a range of accommodation choices from luxury and waterfront villas to budget lodge rooms and a variety of camping and caravan sites. This makes it suited to all kinds of travellers, each able to access a range of facilities that include multiple swimming areas, waterfront access, barbecues, a playground and recreation room, a tennis court, a kiosk and a boat ramp.
Donna and Clarrie say they keep the busy park going thanks to a strong team, who they pin together with an unusual ideal. “We love creating memories with them,” Donna said. “We build smiles!”
With that philosophy, the Tallebudgera team put customer service at the heart of everything they do. Clarrie said they believe in creating positive and memorable customer experiences and focus on ensuring “the park’s standards are consistent with customer expectations”.
Beyond that, they believe Tallebudgera Creek Tourist Park is popular because of its natural advantage as a hub for a water-based holiday full of swimming, fishing, boating, water-skiing, windsurfing and canoeing. For those who prefer the waves, the park is just across the road from the Tallebudgera surf beach and is also a short stroll away from Burleigh Heads National Park, which offers beautiful scenic walks and a lush rainforest to explore.
