Point Turton Caravan Park has been voted South Australia’s best caravan park as part of The Advertiser’s latest “best of” series.
Point Turton, part of the suite of Yorke Peninsula Council Holiday Parks, was amongst 45 shortlisted parks in the state.
Voters chose it ahead of BIG4 Renmark Riverfront, West Beach Parks, Brighton Beachfront Holiday Park and Streaky Bay Islands Caravan Park.
Managers Malcolm and Dani Wheadon said the park’s location is stunning with everything right at its front door.
“The view over Hardwicke Bay is unforgettable,” they said.
“The jetty and boat ramp are easily accessed by the fishing enthusiasts, beautiful swimming areas abound nearby and the sheltered bay is perfect for kayaking and paddle boarding.
“Of course the famous Flaherty’s Beach, which has been listed amongst Australia’s best beaches in recent times, shimmers from across the bay.
“It is a hot spot in summer for everyone who loves the beach while winter fire nights offer the best social environment for travellers to meet like-minded people and make lifelong friendships and lasting memories.”
Point Turton Caravan Park is no stranger to accolades, having been named the Best of the Best Caravan Park and Best Small Caravan Park at the 2022 Grey Nomad Awards.
The Best of the Best is awarded to parks that impressed the judges the most, as determined by the highest cumulative score from all Grey Nomad winners.
Mayor Darren Braund said the recognition from The Advertiser’s readers was good news for the region and spoke volumes about the service provided.
“We congratulate the managers, Dani and Malcolm Wheadon, for this well-deserved award,” he said.
“Council recognises their hard work, motivation and excellent customer service and we are very proud to have been voted the best Caravan Park in SA.
“Council continues to invest in holiday parks as it recognises the importance of tourism for the economy of the Yorke Peninsula.
“Tourism creates new jobs, businesses, events, and attractions therefore diversifying the local economy as well as building great social relationships between visitors and the local community.”
