To celebrate the 100th episode of ‘That Bad Review’ podcast series, Adrian chats with Australian actor, musician, long-standing TV host and more recently holiday park owner, Frankie J Holden. Frankie shares his experience around falling in love with the caravan and camping industry, while hosting the TV series ‘What’s Up Downunder’.
“We would travel all over Australia and visit wonderful places, and go and stay in some wonderful parks”, Holden explains.
Before hosting the show, Frankie explains, that his exposure to the Caravan and Camping Industry was limited. However, his passion grew and eventually led to his co-ownership of Tathra Beachside Holiday Park. On first impression, Frankie thought many park owners were a bit rough around the edges. In time, Frankie came to realise how intelligent and business savvy people managing holiday parks are. Acknowledging it to be a very challenging yet extremely rewarding profession.
Also, on this week’s special 100th episode, Frankie and Adrian chat about the role the caravan and camping industry plays in reconnecting people, with each other as well as with nature. They discuss the future of holiday parks and how they are becoming more like resorts. Frankie explains how many parks now offer the basics right through to luxury options, catering to an extensive range of customer needs and wants.
