Surfest is excited to partner with Reflections Holiday Parks, as presenting rights partner, uniting around a shared commitment to regional tourism and a love of the great outdoors.
Pete Chapman, General Manager of Marketing and Sales, Reflections Holiday Parks said there is great value in aligning to such an iconic community event.
“Reflections Holiday Parks exists to connect people with nature, while growing tourism in regional NSW, so we are delighted to partner with Surfest in its 37th year,” Peter said.
“We are looking forward to spreading the magic of Surfest throughout our beach-side parks, and look forward to partnering with Surfest to get people closer to nature through local surf schools up and down the NSW coast.
“We congratulate Surfest for hosting another world class event in our major heartland, while continuing to nurture local talent and elevate youth, Indigenous and women’s surfing competitions.”
Surfest Director Warren Smith is thrilled to see the Reflections Holiday Parks return, after being a key partner of the High Schools Classic in 2018.
“To have Reflections Holiday Parks join Surfest as the presenting sponsor for Surfest 2023 shows the confidence they have for Surfest. There is a lot of common interest between Reflections Holiday Parks and Surfest. We applaud their commitment to the lands and waters across NSW and are excited to showcase the surfing experience to Reflection Holiday Parks visitors,” Warren said.
The partnership is exciting for both organisations and opens a huge amount of opportunity to share surfing experiences across the 27 coastal Reflections Parks across New South Wales.

Reflections connects 2 million guests to nature across its 36 New South Wales parks each year, investing profit into Crown Land nature reserves.
