THE Caravan Park Grants program – which is providing $10 million for 111 park upgrade projects across Australia – is part of Government’s $48 million package of new funding to support Australia’s tourism and travel businesses and workers in their continued recovery from the impacts of the pandemic.

 

$100,000 will support the construction of two new three-bedroom units at Shelly Beach Holiday Park to replace older cabins.

 

At Two Shores Holiday Village, $100,000 will go towards the refurbishment of ten cabins to make them more accessible while enabling new bathrooms, kitchens, planter boxes, selling fans and gas stoves.

 

Assistant Minister Emma McBride said “We know that in recent years many Australians have rediscovered the fun and adventure of exploring our own country and the abundance of amazing destinations and experiences, like the beaches of the Central Coast, our nation has to offer.

 

“Caravan parks are a popular accommodation option for families, budget conscious travellers and people keen to explore Australia, particularly in our regions.

 

“This funding will not only support local businesses, it will deliver economic benefits for our community by encouraging more Australians and international visitors to come and stay on the Coast.”

 

The funding will provide a boost to local tourism attracting more visitors and encouraging them to stay longer by providing improved visitor experiences.
