Brendan and Bev Heenan

BIG4 MacDonnell Range Holiday Park was built in the early 1980’s by Brendan & Bev Heenan and opened for business in January 1984. The business has remained family owned and operated for 34 years, with the second & third generations of the Heenan family also working in the park.

Brendan & Bev operated a market garden, then a landscaping and nursery businesses on the land for many years before the park was built. Brendan saw an opportunity to build a caravan park on the site to cater for a new wave of travellers coming through Alice Springs on the newly sealed Stuart Highway. His vision was to provide a park which would offer excellent facilities, great service and experiences only found in Central Australia.

BIG4 MacDonnell Range Holiday Park is the most awarded holiday park in the NT, with over 30 tourism awards and the Heenan family look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful park in Alice Springs for an unforgettable experience. And don’t forget to say to hi to Brendan at Sunday morning pancakes – he has been cooking them for guests since 1997!
