Coffin Bay Caravan Park will welcome this summer as a Discovery Holiday Park, following the G’day Group’s acquisition of the idyllic seaside property.

Located right on the esplanade, a stone’s throw from the water, the park is surrounded by national park and offers a wide range of accommodation; from deluxe holiday villas to cabins and grass powered sites.

The property has been within the Group as an independently owned G’day Park and, having been sold to the Group, will now be known as Discovery Parks – Coffin Bay.

Chief Executive Officer of the G’day Group, Grant Wilckens, said the family-owned property is a stunning park in a spectacular location.

“The owners of this property, Andrew and Sharon, have created an exceptional holiday experience with safari tents, quality cabins and facilities. From an adventure playground to great BBQ and gazebo areas it’s a place where you can relax amongst nature with all your creature comforts,” said Grant.

“With the national park on the doorstep, emus and kangaroos roam freely through the property, it’s a real natural paradise.”

“Located between our Streaky Bay and Whyalla properties, the acquisition is strategic for us. We hope guests will choose to stay within our properties as they explore the Eyre Peninsula.”

The Coffin Bay Caravan Park sits upon land managed by the District Council of the Lower Eyre Peninsula. Discovery Holiday Parks will take over the lease for the land.

“We're really excited to be custodians of this property and look forward to working with Lower Eyre Council to realise its potential,” said Grant.
