Secura Lifestyle Awarded Travellers' Choice

Double Wins for Secura Lifestyle - 2021 Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Award


Secura Lifestyle is celebrating the announcement it has been recognised as a 2021 Travellers’ Choice award winner for Secura Lifestyle Lakeside Forster and BIG4 Happy Hallidays. As challenging as the past year was, this achievement celebrates businesses that consistently deliver fantastic experiences for guests, having earned exceptional traveller reviews on Tripadvisor over the last 12 months. The recognition earns both Barrington Coast locations a place in the top 10% of hospitality businesses globally.

Travel in 2020 looked vastly different. We holidayed closer to home, took roadtrips to explore our bigger ‘backyards’, discovered regional towns, like those on the Barrington Coast, and enjoyed the wide, open space of the great outdoors. The reviews and feedback shared by travellers have shined a spotlight on weekend escapes and local getaways – a trend set to continue.

“We’ve welcomed plenty of new faces over the past year. Many of those have chosen to stay with us thanks to the recommendations and reviews on trusted platforms like Tripadvisor. To be recognised directly from our guests is an excellent result and well-deserved recognition of both our NSW Barrington Coast Parks. This acknowledgment reflects all the hard work and dedication from both of our park teams.” says Secura Lifestyle Chief Executive Officer, David Birch.

Located three and half hours drive from Sydney, and even less from Newcastle and the Central Coast, Secura Lifestyle Lakeside Forster boasts a stunning lakefront, tranquil setting on the shores of Wallis Lake. BIG4 Happy Hallidays is the ultimate family and dog-friendly holiday destination with facilities to keep guests entertained and within walking distance to award-winning Black Head Beach.

“Congratulations to all the winners of the 2021 Travelers’ Choice Awards,” said Kanika Soni, Chief Commercial Officer at Tripadvisor. “I know the past year has been extremely challenging for tourism businesses. What has impressed me is how businesses adapted to these challenges, implementing new cleanliness measures, adding social distancing guidelines, and utilizing technology to prioritise guest safety. The Travellers’ Choice Awards highlight the places that are consistently excellent - delivering quality experiences time and time again even while navigating changing customer expectations and new ways of working. Based on a full year of reviews from customers, this award speaks to the great service and experience you provided guests during a pandemic.”

Mr Birch explained that for both parks to be recognised by the award for a consecutive year demonstrates the Secura Lifestyle commitment to a focus on guests. “Providing an exceptional experience and value for our guests is at the heart of what we do. Of course, the biggest thank you needs to go to our guests; for taking the time share their overwhelmingly positive experiences and whom we welcome back time and time again. Despite the challenges of the last year, we thank our guests for choosing to enjoy their ‘freedom escapes’ with us”.
