Local tourist park a traveller’s choice

Family-owned Mount Larcom Tourist Park has been awarded Tripadvisor’s Travellers’ Choice for 2021.

The award celebrates accommodation that consistently delivers fantastic experiences to travellers, and is ranked within the top 10 per cent of properties on Tripadvisor.

“Winners like (Mount Larcom Tourist Park) earned positive traveller reviews and ratings over the past year,” Tripadvisor said.

“In this particularly challenging year, they stood out by providing great service and experiences to their guests.

“Congratulations on their well-deserved win.”

Park owners Del and Kev Smaldon said they were humbled by the recognition.

“We’d like to say thank you to our guests for taking the time and making the effort to leave such lovely reviews for us,” Del said.

After extensive travelling throughout the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Australia, using everything from tents to camper trailers, Del and Kev “decided to give it a go”.

“We know what we liked in a caravan park, and wanted to bring that friendliness, cleanliness, comfort and relaxed atmosphere to our park when we welcome our guests,” Del said.

“Our hope is that all our guests enjoy their stay, travel safe and that we see them again on their way to their next adventure.”

Mount Larcom Tourist Park is situated in a garden setting on 6.5 acres about 27km west of Gladstone.

The pet-friendly site offers ensuite cabins and unpowered and powered camping sites, suitable to camper-trailers, rooftops, tents and caravans.
