Website awards top marks for Gold Coast tourist parks

SIX City of Gold Coast tourist parks have received Certificates of Excellence from the leading travel website, TripAdvisor.

The award recognises accommodation, restaurants and attractions that consistently achieve outstanding traveller reviews on the site.

Reviewers can rate accommodation on several criteria including service, cleanliness, value and location.

To qualify for the award, a business must maintain an overall TripAdvisor rating of at least four out of five and have a minimum number of reviews.

The properties that achieved the award ratings were Kirra Beach Tourist Park; Tallebudgera Creek Tourist Park; Ocean Beach Tourist Park; Main Beach Tourist Park; Broadwater Tourist Park; and South Stradbroke Island. Mayor Tom Tate congratulated the tourist park staff on their hard work and quality service.

"We took out three awards last year and we've significantly improved on that this year, which is a testament to our dedicated staff," he said.

"It's a real pleasure to see visitors to the Gold Coast enjoying the city's facilities and everything else we have to offer."
