RAC members can now save on accommodation when they holiday in WA’s South West, with RAC announcing its acquisition of Busselton’s BIG4 Peppermint Park.

RAC Executive General Manager Brand and Tourism Tony Pickworth said this acquisition builds on RAC’s goal to provide its members with good quality holiday accommodation in key tourism destinations around Western Australia.

“The plan is to provide a range of consistent, reliable quality accommodation options for our members, to encourage Western Australians to holiday in their own backyard,” Mr Pickworth said.

“RAC is excited to invest in such an iconic location with the aim of boosting local tourism and encouraging more Western Australians to holiday at home.”


BIG4 Peppermint Park has won the Tourism Council WA Gold Award three years running, putting it in the Tourism Council WA Hall of Fame.

The holiday park joins other iconic WA locations in the RAC Parks and Resorts family, including the Ningaloo Reef Resort, Exmouth Cape Holiday Park, Monkey Mia Dolphin Resort and Pinnacles Holiday Park.

“As part of the new ownership, the name of the park will change from Big4 Peppermint Park to RAC Busselton Holiday Park, and RAC members will receive up to 20 per cent discount on cabins and sites,” Mr Pickworth said.

“As a mutual organisation, RAC continues to evolve both its member benefits and services to meet the needs of more than 840,000 members across Western Australia.”
