FreeSpirit Resorts Pty Ltd purchased the freehold of Darwin FreeSpirit Resort on Monday, no longer just managing the operations, but now having full ownership and control of the resort.
The management company had already held the leasehold on the Darwin property for nearly 11 years, until the opportunity to purchase the freehold recently became available.
FreeSpirit Resorts Pty Ltd Chief Operations Officer Yvonne Bristow says the acquisition is the beginning of a new era.
“Our involvement with Darwin FreeSpirit Resort dates back to our company’s inception, when we began by assisting corporate entities that had invested in holiday parks or resorts and did not have the operational expertise or desire to manage them,” Ms Bristow says.
“Purchasing the freehold was the most logical step to take after managing the resort for almost 11 years and this now marks the beginning of a new era for us, as well as the resort.
“The acquisition will allow us to operate unconditionally and further improve all facets of the resort.”
Darwin FreeSpirit Resort is situated on 11 hectares in Holtze – 17km from the Darwin CBD and 3km from Palmerston – and when at capacity, has the ability to accommodate up to 1,500 persons per night.
The resort has 3 pools, a licensed bar and bistro, function room, jumping cushion, camp kitchens, barbeque areas and much more.
There are 150 rooms available at the resort, over 300 caravan and camping sites, as well as numerous amenity blocks including laundry facilities for guests.
The resort has a great mix of guests from holidaymakers travelling to Darwin, but also people looking for short or long-term accommodation including contract workers.
FreeSpirit also manages Hidden Valley Tourist Park in Darwin, as well as Fraser Lodge Holiday Park in Hervey Bay and Brighton Caravan Park in Adelaide.
The company also provides operational management services, training and development and master planning consultancy services for the entire caravan industry.
