A new $2 million cabin precinct has been completed at the Reflections Holiday Park that operates on Crown land at Urunga.

The new precinct includes seven, two-bedroom solar powered premium eco cabins to help service increasing demand for high quality, sustainable holiday accommodation in the Coffs Coast region.

The investment lifts the number of cabins at the park to 29 and caters for families, people with disabilities and travellers with pets.

The Urunga park upgrade follows the May release of the Reflection Group’s 2030 Strategic Plan to support regional tourism and economies by investing in park facilities, innovative accommodation, and new guest experiences.

Minister for Lands and Water Kevin Anderson said the quality accommodation would help attract more visitors to Urunga and give the region a boost.

“The NSW Government recently announced $28 million in loan funding to support further upgrades to Reflections Holiday Parks on Crown land and support the group’s strategic plan to bolster regional tourism and economies,” Mr Anderson said.

Reflections Holiday Parks CEO Nick Baker said the expanded accommodation offering and the park’s recent commendation as a 2022 Traveller’s Choice location by online platform, Tripadvisor, encourages more visitors to stay, explore the town and support local businesses.

“We provide nature-driven escapes and Urunga, in its quiet coastal setting with nearby boardwalks, wetlands and scenic walks, is perfect for families looking to relax and recharge,” Mr Baker said.

“As land managers of these parks for the people of NSW, providing a diverse range of accommodation and really lifting our parks so people can experience regional NSW with its unique stories, history, people and landscapes is incredibly important to us.”

Crown Lands and Reflections have also funded a soon-to-be completed Aboriginal yarning circle at the Morgo Street Reserve outside the Urunga park, as an educational centrepiece for the local Gumbaynggirr people, guests and community to share stories and cultural knowledge.

A memorial plaque for Dr Eric Dunn, a local icon and GP committed to the Urunga and Bellingen communities, will also be erected as part of this initiative.

Reflections Holiday Parks manages 36 holiday parks and 43 community reserves on NSW Crown land with profits reinvested back into the 9,289 hectares of land it manages. For further information visit www.reflectionsholidayparks.com.au
