Yarra River, meet Edward River.
It was so fun for us in Deni to meet so many Melbournites in March at Moomba.
Everyone we met at our visitor information stand knew someone from Deni, went to school with someone from Deni, has been holidaying in Deni for years - or were surprised to realise just how close Deni is to Melbourne even though Deni’s in NSW – Deni is just three and a half hours north of Melbourne, an hour past Echuca-Moama.
Of course, waterskiing was on people’s minds – some we met didn’t know Deni is a popular waterskiing destination with a dedicated waterski zone, easy access to the river, and a family-friendly, fun and very affordable school for beginners right through to trick skiers.
So many had heard about Deniliquin's Big4 Holiday Park winning best holiday park in all of Australia in the ‘Caravan & Holiday Parks’ category at the Australian Tourism awards – for the third year in a row, achieving Hall of Fame status! No other holiday park in Australia has ever achieved this.
Folks we met were keen to know about Deni's riverside holiday parks and caravan parks, as well as free camping. With Deni's current special deal of a third night free* now's a great time to enjoy all the facilities offered by the holiday parks. This deal finishes at the end of May – so book your weekend away now.
The best story we heard at the festival was a lovely guy from Box Hill we met whose father had been posted at Deniliquin during WWII at the RAAF No.7 Service Flying Training School. He’s now going to visit to attend the Deni Aero Club’s annual ‘Fly In’. He also had lots of information to share with us and donate to the No.7 SFTS memorabilia collection.
Deni’s relationship with the Moomba Masters organisers is a strong one. Each year we lend them our LED billboard to show the competitor results. The organisers couldn’t be more helpful, and they were very happy with our stand and work over the weekend. We love this relationship we have with Moomba and the waterskiing community.
Well, that was our adventure in Melbourne. We've just been down to visit you - come and visit us now!
