The Awards celebrated the best of the best in the NSW industry.

The awards showcased holiday parks, residential communities, dealerships, service providers, and manufacturing excellence, and were held on a cruise around Sydney Harbour.

"New South Wales is the most popular caravan and camping destination in Australia and today we are celebrating our success," Theo Whitmont, president of CIANSW, said.

The two Best of the Best awards for Trade and Park were awarded to Ballina-based manufacturer Horizon Motorhomes and the Big4 Koala Shores Holiday Park in Port Stephens.

"Horizon has been producing specialist motorhomes since 1995 and is constantly enhancing their product offering to deliver the best product to their customers," Mr Whitmont said.

"Big4 Koala Shores is a prime example of excellence in a holiday park, with a huge range of cabins and camping sites and exceptional facilities that include beautiful pool areas, a cafe, tennis courts, mini golf, boat and go kart hire and a kids club."

Big4 Koala Shores also took out the award for Best Deluxe or Resort Style Park.

Sydney RV Group was another winner on the night, taking out the award for Best Dealer/Retailer/Wholesaler in Sydney for the second year running.
