The BIG4 Holiday Park group has closed off its parks to non-essential travellers effective immediately.
In a release on its website, and currently being shared across social media, Big4 has noted that due to the recent government updates, in particular surrounding non-essential travel, and has closed off all parks to non-essential travellers.
That includes no longer accepting bookings for the time being or accepting any arrivals into their parks. They have gone on to say they most parks will remain open, however, “almost all” in-park leisure facilities will be closed off.
What’s deemed essential travel? According to the release, include necessary travel and accommodation for work purposes, essential accommodation while stopping during a current road trip, travel on compassionate grounds, and travel to return home from around Australia.
What this means, is that if you are out and travelling at the moment, you can still book into the BIG4 Holiday Parks grounds, however, we believe that there will be a time limit on the ability to use the parks “while on a current road trip.”
Should you have a current ‘non-essential’ booking within the next 60 days, you are asked to contact the park directly to discuss options surrounding the booking.
While they are not taking any non-essential travel bookings for the foreseeable future, BIG4 Holiday Parks has, however, stated it will happily take bookings for later in the year and beyond. Especially seeing as that it will give those of us who use the parks something to look forward to into the future.
