Tawonga Caravan Park in Victoria’s Alpine Shire Council local government area will reopen to the public in time for the Easter 2023 school holidays, after extensive underground infrastructure works and a facelift, the Council has announced.
Council says bookings for the park will go live in January, with the revamped park will reopen on Monday, 3 April.
Mayor, John Forsyth said while Council was hoping to have the park open in time for Christmas, contractor delays and lease negotiations have slowed the process down.
“We want to make sure the park is ready to welcome guests,” he said.
“Our new park operators BelgraviaPRO will upgrade the existing cabins, and there is still some external path work, drainage and landscaping to be completed.
“This work will be complete by Easter, which means park guests will get the best possible experience when they visit.
“The Tawonga Caravan Park is an important asset to the local economy, so it’s essential that we bring it to a modern standard while still preserving the character and charm that visitors enjoy so much.”
The Mayor said Council had invested significant funds into the infrastructure below ground, including upgrades to sewer infrastructure and electrical and fire services.
He said most of the project budget has been used for the service upgrades, particularly in addressing serious wastewater issues.
“Visitors will be able to experience a refreshed version of the park they already know and love, with improvements to the renovated amenity blocks, camp kitchen and the new office and kiosk modular building at the front of the park.”
“Belgravia will be investing over $2 million into park infrastructure over the coming five years, including new cabins, a playground, bike storage, playrooms and other capital works,” said Mayor Forsyth.
