Caravan & Holiday Parks

Caravan and holiday parks

Caravan parks, tourist parks and holiday parks all face unique challenges that require specialised solutions. Cash flow, staffing, shifting holiday trends, management systems and reports, digitalisation and succession planning all pose challenges for park owners, but also provide the opportunity to innovate and grow. Our local and national team of experts are dedicated to the accounting and business advisory needs of the Australian tourist park industry, and to building outstanding relationships with our clients. Big 4 Holiday Parks, Caravan Industry Association of Australia, Reflections Holiday Parks, Discovery Parks and Top Parks are among those we are proud to have provided a range of services over the years.

What our clients say

Reflections Holiday Parks

Reflections Holiday Parks operate 37 tourist parks across NSW, making information gathering and interpretation time consuming and not always accurate. BDO had previously completed business advisory work for Reflections and were asked to find a solution. The solution was Parki - BDO's business intelligence tool for tourist and caravan parks.

We use Parki to consolidate our systems and gain maximum value from our data. It saves us significant time in not only collating and interpreting our data, but in the maintenance of systems - which is highly valuable to our business.
