The Gumnut Awards Program is an environmental initiative by the Caravan and Camping Industry Association (CCIA) which provides a progressive rating scheme for holiday and tourist park members, manufacturers and dealers of caravans, recreational vehicles and accessories.
Brisbane Holiday Village has acheived a Gold Rating in 2012, the highest level in the program and the first to achieve this outside of New South Wales.
To achieve recoginition for a Gold Gumnut Award we had to report and prove continued commitment on all environmental initiatives across the following ten areas of sustainablity:
In addition, we had to present 30 additional environmental improvements, in those same categories, to undertake in the Village in the next 5 years.
The program aims to protect and reflect the uniqueness of the Australian environment and culture. Participation in this program benefits not just Brisbane Holiday Village but it benefits everyone involved - park visitors, holidaymakers, customers, residents, staff, the community and the environment of course.
