Jimmys Beach ups Stakes in Holiday Park Experiences with $5 Million Upgrade

Reflections Holiday Parks

Work is underway on a $5 million upgrade to the Jimmys Beach at Hawks Nest ready for guests in time for Summer.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter Taylor Martin said the Jimmy’s Beach upgrade will include a premium eco-cabin precinct, glamping tents, a luxury pool and high-speed Wi-Fi for entertainment and work.

“This investment in quality accommodation at the Reflections Holiday Park on Crown Land will attract more visitors and strengthen regional tourism and business spending,” Mr Martin said.

“The NSW Government recently announced $28 million in loan funding to support upgrades to Reflections Holiday Parks and support the group’s new Strategic Plan to boost regional tourism and economies, so we can expect to see more investments like this.”

Reflections Holiday Parks CEO Nick Baker said Jimmys Beach attracts about 50,000 visitors each year who inject about $2.2 million into the region, but that will grow when the park upgrades are completed by November.

“The humble caravan park has come a long way from basic amenities, caravans and tents with Jimmys Beach park set to elevate the holiday park experience with a range of caravan, camping and accommodation options including premium luxury experiences,” Mr Baker said.

“More travellers are holidaying closer to home so it is important we provide a diverse range of accommodation and really lift our parks so people can get the holiday experience they want. Jimmys Beach is in a perfect location for weekend getaways from Sydney and Newcastle and our new redevelopment will take the park to that next level that our guests are expecting.” The park upgrades will be completed in early November 2022 and include:

  • A large, luxury saltwater pool.
  • Nine solar powered-premium cabins based on Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) principles, including an all-access cabin with a ramp to the pool area for people with a disability.
  • Two glamping beach tents lifting the number to five available for bookings.
  • An upgrade of internet with individual Wi-Fi Access Points to provide cabin guests with more entertainment options and enable working on site, a growing trend amongst domestic tourists.
