A VICTORIAN caravan park will provide
electricity to 36 unpowered sites after receiving $85,000 from the state
Work to upgrade power sites at the Cohuna Waterfront Holiday Park will go
ahead after Gannawarra Shire Council was handed the grant from the
Caravan and Camping Grants program.
"One of the largest caravan parks in the Gannawarra, the park features 245
sites and 18 cabins, offering a range of accommodation options and
amenities for visitors," the council's acting chief executive Stacy
"Unfortunately the existing supply does not provide enough power to the
park's powered sites."
As part of the works, a transformer will be installed on-site, increasing
the electricity supply from 250amps to 1000amps.
"The installation will guarantee an adequate power supply to the park
year-round, including peak times, eliminating the need to restrict
accommodation bookings and employ the use of a generator during peak
holiday times," Ms Williams said.
"This upgrade will also provide the means for the holiday park to expand
"Additionally, through providing more opportunities to accommodate
visitors to Cohuna, these improvements will grow the tourism market,
providing new business opportunities for both the holiday park and other
local businesses while encouraging greater promotion of the local
environment to a larger market."
