Tweed Holiday Parks made the font page of the Tweed Daily News on 6, April 2019! The article featured the new Kingscliff park that has been in operation for 12 months and has already had great success, hosting 40,000 holidaymakers since it's opening.
The demand on the park has exceeded the expectations of park managers, Luke and Brooke who "can't keep the smiles off their faces". The park recently underwent major renovations and refurbishments, which has given the sites a nice breath of fresh air and modern look and feel. New cabins have been built, attracting holiday-makers who love beach-side accommodation but also enjoy an affordable price. The team at Barefruit sent out a Press Release to media about the success of the Kingscliff park, and we were thrilled to find the piece had been picked up for a front page feature.
Tweed Holiday Parks initially approached Barefruit to guide them through a rebrand project. We have continued this relationship and assist them with their SEO, social media, digital advertising and more. You can read more this project here.
The location, modern facilities and drive of staff to go the extra mile is what keeps attracting visitors to the park. According to Tweed Holiday Parks Business Development manager, Lisa Mcrae, "those are the key elements to keep tourists coming back to the Tweed with a smile on their face." Lisa went on to say, "I think the location in Tweed is definitely a selling point for our customers. Five of our parks are located on the beachfront," she said.
Excitingly for the business, of the seven council-owned parks, four have been given the TripAdvisor Travellers Choice Award based on customer feedback in the most recent awards.

The juicy team at Barefruit has taken out another accolade, winning ‘2019 Business Excellence in Business and Professional Services’ at the Ballina Shire Business Awards on Saturday August 10th.
We were in top company competing with a variety of business services including real estate agencies, mortgage lenders and consulting companies.
Chief Juicer Evan Harding says “We feel that a large part of our success can be attributed to creating a workplace culture that is passionate - passionate about what we do for our clients, but also about our team’s wellbeing, and how we give back to the local community and beyond.”
He goes on to say “We have brought together a team of highly creative and skilled individuals, who are dedicated to seeing their clients succeed in all aspects of their business. We spend the time to build personal relationships in order to thoroughly understand their goals and devise an individual strategy to ultimately deliver results.”
We extend this approach internally as well. Our Agency manager says that we “Have brought together a group of people who truly care about each other. We work around individual schedules and have flexible hours which allow certain life, family and extracurricular activities to fit into our professional lives. This approach really pays off when the team are living a well-balanced life and are able to let the creativity and strategic thinking flow naturally”.
We also donate a heap of hours on a pro bono basis working closely with community projects and not for profits. This year we dedicated our time and resources to the Ballina Shire’s ‘Reduce Single Use’ campaign, Biala Support Services (supporting people with disabilities) and Rafiki Mwema (who recently gained worldwide exposure when they were one of fifteen charities followed on Instagram by the Sussex Royals Harry and Megan).
Chief Juicer Claire Harding notes that “This is what I love about creating this agency from the ground up. We are able to craft a special workplace in the way we want to see change in business…and the world. I started this agency seven years ago in my dining room knowing that I wanted to do what I love, while seeing clients succeed and the community grow. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for us.”
