Holiday parks key to growing tourism sustainably in the regions

Friday, 27 April 2018

Holiday parks are central to driving sustainable regional tourism growth, says Holiday Parks New Zealand, as statistics show holiday parks now host more than 8 million guest nights per year.
The latest Statistics New Zealand figures indicate that over the year ended February 2018, guests spent 8,019,234 nights at holiday parks in New Zealand, 20.2% of total guest nights and 4.5% up on the previous year, a growth rate ahead of other sectors. 
“Holiday parks provide a large proportion of regional New Zealand guest nights and are an important part of regional economic development,” says Holiday Parks New Zealand Chief Executive Fergus Brown.
