Discovery Holidays Parks, Jindabyne is receiving a facelift as the park introduces 12 brand new mountain style cabins to their premises.

General Manager of the Jindabyne site, Stuart Ryan is excited to be offering the use of these new cabins ready for the winter season opening on the long weekend in June.

Twelve new four sleep superior cabins with fireplaces are being installed ahead of the winter season housing an extra 48 people in the park per night, equalling more than 4,000 people per night over the entire winter season.

Each cabin will feature a master bedroom, single room with bunks, open living area, gas powered fireplace, bathroom facility and the overall creature comforts you need for winter getaway. These uniquely designed cabins are made by Yarrawonga Manufactured Housing in Mulwala NSW and offer a mountain feel situated only metres from the shoreline of Lake Jindabyne.

Stuart said Discovery Holiday Parks have installed the cabins pre-winter looking to ease the shortage of accommodation in Jindabyne as well as turning the park into a more tourist focused park.

“Previously the park was a mix of tourism and annual sites meaning we had no real control of the appearance of the sites and who was entering the park,”  Stuart said.

“By switching our sites to purely tourism we are now able to have full control of the park which also makes it safer and we can provide that real holiday feel.”

Discovery Holiday Parks all across Australia have their own design and landscape focused cabins and are now taking full advantage of the boom in domestic tourism by upgrading their parks to best suit their locations.

Using local tradesman Stuart and the management office decided to close the park for three weeks while completing upgrades and he was excited to reopen to the public. 

“Discovery Holiday Parks are putting in a lot of work to make this part of town a lot nicer, they wish they could do more to combat the free camping issue that Jindabyne is experiencing however this is our first step at providing what’s best for the community”, Stuart said.

He said it was exciting to see what’s happening at the park and was excited about spending money in Jindabyne. He is looking at expanding the footprint the park has already and this is the first big step with many more to come.
