Refurbishment Award

Let’s celebrate your biggest achievements in the park this year!

One of 2020’s Biggest Opportunities

While 2020 was not a great year in many ways, it still presented some opportunities too good to miss. Many Parkies turned the tables on 2020 and used their time getting stuck into some long-awaited renovations. From general maintenance and mowing lawns to major renovations, the list of accomplishments by Parkies is endless.

Did you Renovate?

The CPAQ Refurbishment Award recognises the time and investment made by Parks across Queensland to improve guest experience and reduce the workload on their staff.

If you took advantage of the extra time on your hands this year and made improvements – big or small, why not celebrate them through the CPAQ Refurbishment Award?

DID YOU KNOW: Refurbishments do not need to cost a lot of money to make a big impact and we want to hear about them all.


The Refurbishment Award nomination form can be found on the CPAQ Website and nominating is as easy as:

  1. answer a few questions telling us why the renovation was needed, what was the outcome, and how this has improved your key metrics
  2. submit some before and after photos that really show the difference that you have made to awards@caravanqld.com.au
  3. provide some of the great feedback from your guest and customer reviews.

Nominations close 5pm, 31 March 2021

Writing a winning submission – the 4i’s


What will catch the judges’ interest? Judges may read a number of entries so think about starting with a clear statement that sets the scene and makes it clear why you are a worthy recipient of the award then expand from there


What makes your story unique? Carefully choose words that can help you articulate this – was it the first, the only, the biggest etc


This is possibly the most important part – make sure you include evidence to back up what you claimed to have achieved. Give actual figures, customer reviews and consider including graphs.  Ensure the judges are truly blown away by your achievements!


A picture is worth a thousand words – consider the careful use of images, charts and diagrams to get your message across
