Tourism grant helps park become disabled-friendly

Have your say

A CARAVAN park on the banks of Lake Mulwala in NSW is set to become more disabled-friendly, thanks to a $104,561 federal government grant.

The money will go towards providing a special cabin and playground for the disabled at the newly-built DC on the Lake holiday park, which was devastated by a tornado almost five years ago.

The grant was announced by local MPs Sussan Ley and Greg Aplin.

The park has received funding to support a $200,000 project for cabin accommodation and an all-access playground at its site on the banks of the picturesque lake.

State member for Albury Mr Aplin said the financial support came from the 2017/18 round of the Tourism Demand-Driver Infrastructure program, a Commonwealth-funded initiative administered by the State Government to support tourism projects that drive demand and increase local tourism expenditure.

The grant will be matched by the park owners and will help bolster tourism to Mulwala.

"I'm delighted to announce funding to support the next stage of the DC on the Lake project which will enable the construction of a fully accessible cabin and stage one of an all-access playground including pathways, landscaping, shaded areas and barbeque facilities," Mr Aplin said.

"DC on the Lake provides a unique tourism experience in the region and this project will improve the quality of that experience and attract more visitors."

Member for Farrer Ms Ley said the project was another step in a lengthy road back for the park since the 2013 storm.

She congratulated park owner Craig O’Callaghan and his team on the work they were doing at the park.

"The all-ability features being installed just shows the lengths they are going to, ensuring it remains a first class tourist venue for Mulwala and the region," she said.

Mr O’Callaghan said the playground, expected to open in July, would be "more for guests" than the general public.
