Hailing from Sheffield, England for well over 25 years, Darren has worked in diverse areas of tourism in the UK, Africa, Asia and Cape York in Australia.

Acknowledging his passion for training and the industry, Darren was elected as a board member for Caravan Parks Association of Qld (CPAQ) and onto the training committee for the national industry body, CRVA. Darren was also elected as State President of the CPAQ in 2016.
In 2018, Darren partnered with Belgravia Leisure to launch BelgraviaPRO, and as General Manager, leads this tourist park management provider in managing tourist parks across Australia..
