Valley View Caravan Park Snags Gold Gong at Grey Nomad Awards

A King Valley caravan park has won a prestigious national Grey Nomad Award, helping to
cement the region’s reputation as a destination that caters to mature-age visitors in
exemplary ways.
The Valley View Caravan Park was announced the Gold winner of the 2022 Best Grey Nomad
Small Caravan Park from the Sunshine Coast tonight.
The Grey Nomad Awards shine a light on regional Australia by showcasing the very best places
to stay and play, while supporting positive aging through soft adventure and social inclusion.
With a focus on showcasing the vast experiences offered in regional, rural and remote Australia,
this year’s Awards championed communities and operators from all mainland states and
territories except Western Australia.
With rigorous judging by mature-age tourism professionals, some of whom have experienced
the grey nomad lifestyle personally, plus second-tier auditing, social analysis and due diligence,
the Valley View Caravan Park’s win has the credence of the tourism sector.
The township of Whitfield at the foothills of the Alpine National Park is home to the Valley View
Caravan Park. It is where mature age visitors find exemplary customer service and a memorable
experience thanks to owners Sue and John. The park’s central location is ideal for exploring the
town, surrounding King Valley and Victorian High Country. It is a setting with natural allure
where tranquillity, beauty, mountains, sunny days and starry nights all beckon. Valley View
Caravan Park has an assortment of accommodation including 57 powered and 10 non-powered
sites, is pet friendly and boasts a communal firepit for warm hands and conversation.

Awards Director, Kim Morgan, said the Awards provide verified information for mature-age
travellers, helping guide their decisions on which are the best towns, campsites, tours and
attractions to spend their hard-earned money.
“In that regard, these Awards brought together an exemplary selection of domestic tourism
experiences that perfectly reflect the unique, charming and high-quality offerings that matureage travellers can experience,” Ms Morgan said.
“Thanks to Mother Nature and the lasting affects on staffing brought about by the pandemic,
2022 remained a tough year for everyone in tourism in one way or another. Everyone
recognised throughout the 2022 Awards program should take a bow for demonstrating
innovation, resilience and a commitment to the pursuit of excellence under challenging
circumstances,” she said.
In commenting on the success of the Valley View Caravan Park, the judges said, “The
enthusiasm of the owners and staff of Valley View Caravan Park leaps off the page and clearly
translates to happy visitors to the Victorian High Country region.
“We also loved how the King Valley indirectly came to life through this submission – it really
made us want to experience this little slice of Italy set amongst the verdant rolling hills,” the
judges commented.
“Grey Nomads are looking for authentic experiences that educate them, provide connection,
and are good value for money. The Valley View Caravan Park delivers that in spades,” the judges
