NRMA Parks and Resorts’ investment in Murramarang Beachfront Holiday Resort supports local community and business

NRMA Parks and Resorts’ investment in Murramarang Beachfront Holiday Resort supports local community and business
November 26, 2021

NRMA Parks and Resorts has invested almost $1 million in upgrades to its popular Murramarang Beachfront Holiday Resort this year, completed just ahead of the summer season to benefit the community of South Durras on the New South Wales South Coast.

NRMA has made the most of recent temporary closures at the resort to restyle several guest cabins, dining and recreation areas in a contemporary beach-house theme designed to reflect the pristine coastal environment.

A further million-dollar-spend is anticipated for a next phase of the upgrade.

As part of the investment, NRMA Parks and Resorts has appointed Alison Langley as Resort Manager, who brings to the role a career lifetime’s experience in tourism and hospitality with a focus on dining and guest experiences.

Impacted first by devastating bushfires in the summer of 2019/20 and subsequently by the COVID-19 pandemic and associated travel restrictions, the tight-knit community of South Durras has stood together to support and restore the many businesses reliant on tourism and help regenerate the coastal landscape.

The region is distinguished by the Murramarang National Park located on Yuin country, where a range of biking and hiking trails access secluded, pristine beaches.

One of the most exciting developments in the resort is the refreshed dining experience with renovations across the bistro, bar and takeaway outlets plus a new menu featuring seasonal local produce.

A new guest experience program will feature hosted in-park events designed to facilitate fun and friendships and include a chance for guests to meet local producers and learn straight from the farmers how to shuck oysters or cook up a barbecue with the freshest ingredients from the local butcher.

Resort Manager Alison Langley said the team wanted to offer guests a real taste of the South Coast, creating a dining experience that would highlight region’s diverse range of premium producers and advised “we’ve partnered with the Oyster Life farmers on the Clyde River to bring our guests a true taste of the region with an industry first tank system where we can store fresh oysters in the Clyde River water right here on site and offer fresh oysters shucked to order.”

As part of the works, NRMA engaged local tradespeople and suppliers, providing welcome work and economic support for the region’s many small businesses. The resort’s staff was retained over the period, supporting local families with steady income during a time of uncertainty for the broader tourism industry.

NRMA Parks and Resorts Chief Executive, Paul Davies said the company’s investment in guest accommodation, facilities, and experiences at Murramarang came just in time for the reopening of travel into and around NSW.

“We’re very pleased to be able to support the community and small businesses around Murramarang as they emerge from a tough time and to appeal to new and returning holidaymakers with a fresh new tourism product promising a bright future for the region,” said Davies.
