BIG4 welcomes a new park in Bendigo

BIG4 has welcomed a new addition to its 180-strong network of parks. BIG4 Bendigo Marong Holiday Park has joined the BIG4 family, giving travellers another superior accommodation option when choosing to holiday across Australia.

The park is situated on the Calder Highway, just 14 kilometres from historic Bendigo and in the heart of the Marong wine region. The family owned and operated park boasts access to an impressive range of facilities including a swimming pool, kids’ jumping pillow and large chess set, BBQs and a camp kitchen.

PicMonkey CollageIn March 2013 the park was bought by new owners, Deb and Brett Peters, who were looking for a change of scenery and the opportunity to be part of a business that would give them more quality family time.

Originally from Torquay, the couple both come from a corporate background but after the birth of their twins, they wanted to swap the office for an exciting new business venture. It was during a family holiday at a BIG4 Holiday Park that the couple decided that they wanted to run their own and after researching the region, they chose the Bendigo Marong Holiday Park to start their new life.

Since taking over the park, Deb and Brett have re-landscaped the grounds, installed a kids’ jumping pillow and life size chess board and have opened three new cabins. The couple are keen to maintain the family feel of the park and promote the various activities that holiday goers can enjoy when they visit.

The park offers an impressive range of accommodation options including superior cabins, executive cabins, deluxe cabins and budget cabins and all cabins have ensuites and kitchen facilities. Camping and caravan sites are also available with off peak rates starting at just $30 per night.
