Customer Appreciation Weekends

We love hanging out with our customers.…and….we love caravanning and camping….so….we put the two together. We thoroughly look forward to our Jayco Mackay Customer Appreciation Weekends and have no intention of stopping these any time soon. We’re trying to mix it up and do something different each time but the principal remains the same – It’s all about hanging out together, sharing stories, meeting new friends and having fun. We love rewarding our customers so we usually spoil the kids a bit, fire up the bbqs and also put on some form of entertainment whether it’s trivia, live music, movies or games for the kids.

We’re trying to spread the weekends away around the local region so that we get to see a new place each time. Here are a list of our past Customer Appreciation Weekends and our upcoming ones. Be sure to register your interest for the event to get on the priority list before the event gets sent to our database.

Customer Appreciation Weekend #7 – Cape Palmerston Holiday Park, August 2-4, 2019

We had such a fun time at Cape Palmerston in 2017 that we have decided to do it all again on August 2-4, 2019.
We are going to follow pretty much the same format as last time….
  • ‘Meet n Greet’ on Friday night @6:45pm sharp. Please bring a plate to share. Savoury or sweet – you choose. We will be having a quick disco for the kids from 7:30pm-8:00pm.
  • Saturday morning free time.
  • Saturday afternoon beach 4×4 adventure to the look-out for a group photo. Meet @2:30pm at reception in your vehicle. If you aren’t keen on driving your vehicle on the beach, that’s ok. We ask those who will be driving on the beach to kindly offer any spare seats to others. We’ll try and squeeze in some afternoon lawn games including Finska & Giant Jenga when we get back to the park if time permits.
  • Saturday evening bbq and live entertainment from 6pm until 10pm. BYO drinks. We’ll be getting a fire going to keep everyone warm too.
  • Sunday morning breakfast at 8:00am. A 12pm checkout has been organised with the park.
We estimate that each time we have a customer appreciation weekend, 600-700 pieces of plastic end up as waste and ultimately in landfill. In an attempt to reduce this waste we kindly ask guests to bring their own crockery and cutlery to each meal. 
Another reminder to top up your water tanks before you leave home as the majority of us will be camping on the grass sites down the bottom end of the park.  
See you there!

Customer Appreciation Weekend #6, Cape Hillsborough 10-12 May 2019

We’re heading back to Cape Hillsborough Tourist Park!

We are very excited about this weekend and wanted to give you a quick run-down on what we are planning for the weekend.,

  • Friday Arrival – Meet and greet from 6:00pm at the common area. Get your order in for fish and chips at reception of you feel like have a lazy night and not cook. We certainly are!
  • Saturday morning – relax and enjoy this beautiful weather. We encourage you to go on a bushwalk through the beautiful walking tracks.
  • Saturday afternoon – We have some fun on the beach planned from 2:30pm. We ask everyone to head down and we’ll spend the afternoon there. Bring down your beach towel or picnic rug and some drinks if you wish.
  • Saturday evening – BBQ cook up for dinner and we’ll be testing your knowledge again with Trivia Pursuit. A movie will keep all the younger ones entertained.
  • Sunday morning – Breakfast BBQ provided by us to ensure you head home with a full stomach. P.S DON’T FORGET IT’S MOTHERS DAY!

See you all then.

Big 4 Adventure Whitsunday, Airlie Beach – November 16-18 (Customer Appreciation Weekend #5)

We finished the year with a bang! Airlie Beach hosted our 5th Customer Appreciation Weekend at Big 4 Adventure Whitsunday. As most locals will know this park is outstanding for families with their recently constructed Water Park consisting of 13 water slides, kids club, animal park, and more!

The plan was to keep this weekend very simple to give customers flexibility to enjoy the park as they please. Friday evening pizzas for everyone was nice and simple and allowed everyone to get down to relaxing right away. Saturday was free time until we gathered for an extended Happy Hour, fun and games and a signature Jayco Mackay BBQ.

‘Pancakes by the Pool’ was the perfect way to end the weekend! The weather was perfect and it couldn’t have went better.



Finch Hatton Showgrounds – July 2018 (Customer Appreciation Weekend #4)

We treasure our Pioneer Valley but many of us never realised how much of a little gem Finch Hatton Showgrounds would be to camp at – the view, the greenery, the fresh air and great company. Some of our lasting memories from the weekend will include campfires, Pig on a Spit, Bingo in the hall and how cold it was on Saturday night! Thanks for everyone who made the trip out and joined in on the fun!




Conway Beach Tourist Park – April 2018 (Customer Appreciation Weekend #3)

We picked the perfect weekend for this one. Not too hot to break a sweat, not too cold to shy away from the pool. Conway Beach Tourist Park is a meticulously groomed park and in a great spot. We kicked the event off with make-your-own Pizza’s on Friday night. Then on Saturday we enjoyed the afternoon at the park hanging out with each other and playing a series of games and activities. On Saturday night, many guests told us that the steak was some of best they’ve ever had – it must have been good because it all got cleaned up. We won’t talk too much about the Karaoke. On Sunday morning we took the kids down to the beach to go digging for treasure then finished the weekend off with a hearty breakfast.  Thank you to Debbie, George, Warren, Taylah and Tiani. P.S. George’s Diner is ‘must see’.



Cape Palmerston Holiday Village – October 2017 (Customer Appreciation Weekend #2)

The weather was not looking good a few days before but we somehow managed to pick the perfect gap and the weekend worked out beautifully. On Friday we all caught up and brought a plate to share. Then on Saturday we had some 4×4 fun and set off down the beach and onto the bush tracks to explore the area. No-one got bogged thankfully and a lot of people got to experience driving on the beach for the first time. In the evening we had a massive cook-up, live acoustic music and give-aways for the kids. A breakfast bbq made sure that no-one was going home hungry! A huge thanks to Ben and Amanda for their help and hospitality over the weekend.




Cape Hillsborough Tourist Park – May 2017 (Customer Appreciation Weekend #1)

Being our inaugural event, we weren’t quite sure what to expect. We kept the format simple – Saturday afternoon beach sports – cricket and soccer. A referee or two might have come in handy though. We put on a massive barbeque feast and then Trivia came out. There were a few sharp minds amongst the group and the winning team got some goodies to take home.

Ben and Renea made us feel most welcome. The kangaroos put on a show, the weather was perfect and it was a weekend to remember.
