Uniplan Group's Crazy $10,000 give-a-way

During a bout of incoherent madness we have decided to run an amazing $10,000 competition. The lucking winner will get to choose from:

- A golf buggy valued at $10,000 or

- A Walker mower valued at $10,000 or

- A $10,000 voucher towards a holiday of their choice!

What's more, there are only 75 tickets available. So your chances are high. Every cabin you order between 1/8/14 and 31/1/15 earn you one of the 75 tickets.


Competition is available to holiday parks only.

AgQuip - What a ripper!

Uniplan Group at the AgQuip 2014 Farm FestivalUniplan Group at the AgQuip 2014 Farm Festival

Wow - 9000 (yes 9000) people walked through our display cabin in just three days! Let's just make a huge understatement and say this far, far exceeded our expectations!

As this was our first time exhibiting at AgQuip we were unsure how many viewers we would have. We planned for about 2000 (if we were lucky). Instead this turned into a mass stampede as people flocked to see our cabin we had on display.

This gave a lot of folk a tremendous idea of how a clever design within a 72m2 cabin can be so spacious. The new two bedroom Burgandy design is a very clever use of space.

Uniplan wins Stockton Beach Holiday Park Project

Posted by:

Ben Scott

Uniplan Group has won the Newcastle City Council tender to provide 16 new cabins to the Stockton Beach Holiday Park. Building on the success of our previous development at the park we are sure this will be another outstanding showcase.

The previous devolpment during 2011 involved us supplying 11 cabins that helped the park win their place in the 'Top 10 Holiday Parks' in NSW as well as becoming a finalist in the 2013 QantasLink Hunter & Central Coast Tourism Awards.

We are certain the new cabin development will take the Stockton Beach Holiday Park from 'Good' to 'Great'.

What is your Mona Lisa?

Posted by:

Ben Scott

Did you know that at the Louvre Museum in Paris, which houses the Mona Lisa (also known as the La Gioconda), has a stock of about 385,000 artworks with 35,000 on display at any one time?

Do you know that 100's of people wait in long queues every day to get into the Louvre Museum.... to see what? The 35,000 artworks? No one little 77cm x 53cm painting called the Mona Lisa painted in 1506.

OK - so what's the relevance of that?

If you want your holiday park to be successful you need a Mona Lisa. What? We need a 77 x 53cm painting?

No - a distinctive point of difference! You can't see the Mona Lisa anywhere else in the world but at the Musee du Louvre. What do you have at your holiday park that you need to tell everybody about?

Just like us - you can buy cabins and buildings from almost anywhere. But if you want our vision of innovative, functional and modern forms along with our friendly family values then where do you go?

So make a big list of your holiday park's best attractions. Then chop this list down to your two very best offerings. That is your Mona Lisa!! It could be anything... your kiddies pool, your cafe, your views... whatever.

Every time you have a client on the line - tell them about your Mona Lisa!

Don't talk about the weather and the economy - talk about your Mona Lisa... and watch them line up at your door.

(Sorry this blog doesn't really link with cabins or ablutions or any such buildings - but is sure links with our vision of "bringing our clients trustworthy advice and information to facilitate their success")

Is this 3 bedroom cabin good enough for you?

Posted by:

Ben Scott

I have just uploaded a stunning three bedroom design called the FARGO. Check it out on the plans page or download the Fargo PDF here. What do you think? Any good?

What is important with a three bedroom design is to think about the extra people you are planning to accommodate. You need to allow for sufficient functionality in the way of practical bathrooms, dining and other spaces.

The Fargo has a pretty clever main bathroom set up to allow for multiple users at one with a separate WC, vanity area and shower.

Real Testimonials

Testimonials   View All

"Dealing with you has made it a lot better because the whole process is a lot easier, we can to and fro a few designs and end up with a great design. That was the most important thing from my point of view.

I mean, it’s not necessarily price, I mean, in actual fact you’re not necessarily cheaper - it’s not price, it comes down to design."

Gerald Searle – Ballina Lakeside
Holiday Park

"Not only do you listen to me but you expand on the idea and give me a couple of options. The most important thing is the quickness in response that you’ve always provided and the professional documentation that you provide which gives one the confidence to continually move forward.

The quality of the information and the specifications you provide and you are always in a position to listen, you know, you don’t drive the project as if ‘oh well that’s a stock standard cabin and sorry that’s just it’"

Robert Robertson – Halifax Holiday Park

"What is so important as we’ve found out is your reliability and your understanding of modern changes and trends in the market – you’re not wallowing behind! What I’ve seen with your designs is you are out there to be at the top of the market in design and quality.

When we actually visited your place it was outstanding – your production and proficiency.”

Richard O’Neill – Solitary Island Resort

“What we think is amazing with UniPlan Group, they are incredibly easy to work with, they take care of every detail and the after sales service is second to none.

You guys listen to us in what we want in a cabin and you produce it - without doubt, taking all the hassle out”

Kris Fowler – Emerald Beach Holiday Park

"We would recommend you to other Holiday Parks, because it was a good experience. We found you really professional, efficient, you've kept us totally informed, and it's been quite honestly, the best building experience we have had. It's a lot better experience than having builders on site, and having to keep an eye on everything all the time."

Dave + Carol Adams – Rotorua Top 10
