A CARAVAN park has become the first Fraser Coast
property for 11 years to be accepted into the Land for Wildlife
Manager of the 75-acre Fraser Coast RV Park Suzanne Denton told
Caravanning News she was thrilled and it had been an "exciting day" when
the official Land for Wildlife sign was handed over.
Land for Wildlife is a voluntary program which encourages and assists
landholders to manage wildlife habitat on their properties. It was founded
in Victoria over 30 years ago.
Forty acres of the park at River Heads is a dedicated nature reserve,
boasting over 4km of walking tracks.
Ms Denton said that in addition to freshwater billabongs, the unique park
had its own mob of about 30 kangaroos.
"Birdwatchers recently spotted 59 species of birds," she said.
"It is a special place here. With so much wildlife around and getting in
touch with nature can have a very calming effect on the body and soul.
"It gives us great pleasure to see the guests enjoying first-time
experiences at our property."
She said the RV park was the ideal place to connect with nature and get
the children out of their "technology haze".
"We can accommodate all types of campers, grey nomads, families,
fisherman, bird watchers, disabled, dog lovers, nature lovers, bush
walkers and back packers."
