New, environmentally friendly cabins are expected to bring more tourists to the Camden Haven.

Reflections Holiday Parks at Bonny Hills has officially unveiled eight new cabins which it is hoped will bring more tourists to town.

The new cabin precinct were opened on February 24 and Bonny Hills Park Managers Jack and Peggy Kelly said the new cabins were an absolute boost to regional tourism.

"We are proud of their sustainable design and our staff Pip and Jarron Neal are excited to offer such a wonderful product," they said.

Port Macquarie MP Leslie Williams MP was on hand to officially open the new complex and said the completion of the eight new cabins would go a long way to helping support regional tourism.

Reflections Holiday Parks CEO Steve Edmonds said the cabins were further commitment to supporting regional and rural NSW.

"We know that for every dollar spent on overnight stays at a Park like Bonny Hills, that is $1.38 directly into the local community," Mr Edmonds said.

"This development meets the demand for more roofed accommodation in the tourism sector regionally."

The cabins allow guests to maximise enjoyment of the natural environment, the use of handmade furniture and art works from local artisans and inclusion of premium pet friendly options.

"We are particularly proud of the use of sustainable design (ESD) principles throughout the development, minimising the impact on the environment from inception through to ongoing operation."

Mr Edmonds said the new eco-cabins will be an excellent addition to the park at Bonny Hills.

"Our new eco-cabins at Bonny Hills are designed to open up to as much light and ventilation as possible to reduce the need for artificial lighting and cooling," he said.

"Solar power has been designed to be energy neutral over each 12 month period, we collect rainwater for irrigation, the cabins maximise use of natural, sustainable and renewable materials and furniture is made of locally-sourced recycled timber."
