A boost for regional towns: Minister

Cohuna to provide more powered
sites after $85,000 government grant

Cohunda Waterfront Holliday Park Have your say

A VICTORIAN caravan park will provide electricity to 36 unpowered sites after receiving $85,000 from the state government.

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 Williams said.

"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 its facilities.

"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."
