Call for NSW holiday parks board members

Qualified applicants are invited to help steer the future direction of some of NSW’s most iconic holiday destinations by joining the board of Reflections Holiday Parks.

The NSW Department of Planning and Environment is seeking to fill three board positions including a new chair for Reflections, which is a Crown land manager of 37 holiday parks and 45 community reserves across coastal and inland areas of regional NSW.

Candidates will be considered based on their expertise across priority areas including property management, information technology, government relations, tourism, environmental sustainability, community engagement and legal skills. Other desirable skills include governance, audit and risk management, organisational performance and marketing communications.

“Reflections is the state’s largest holiday park group and the only social enterprise holiday park group in Australia, reinvesting all profits back into the parks and 9300 hectares of Crown land it manages for social and environmental good on behalf of the people of NSW,” said Minister for Lands and Property, Steve Kamper.

“Reflections operates in coastal locations from Brunswick Heads to Eden and inland near major dams like Burrinjuck and Copeton, offering cabin, caravan, camping and glamping accommodation on pristine reserves in some of the state’s most beautiful locations.

“I look forward to welcoming qualified and committed people who can assist the board’s critical work to ensure these iconic holiday spots are well-managed and protected for current and future generations to enjoy.”

Reflections Holiday Parks is appointed by the NSW Government as the NSW Crown Holiday Parks Land Manager under the Crown Land Management Act 2016, providing coordinated management of holiday parks on Crown land across regional NSW. 

Its board sets the strategic direction and governance framework for the organisation which manages about 300 staff, generates over $80 million in economic benefits for the state, and hosts holiday stays for an estimated 2 million guests each year.

Applications are open from today (11 October) to 1 November 2023 with successful candidates to be appointed to the seven member board by December and begin five-year terms from April 2024.
