'Providing facilities expected by guests'

$3.5m makeover will provide bigger sites for RVs

Have your say

IN a $3.5 million makeover, a caravan park on Queensland's thriving Sunshine Coast will have the number of sites reduced to make room for bigger caravans.

Sunshine Coast Council says the time has come for the industry to meet a trend for larger caravans, motorhomes and camping trailers.

Councillor John Connolly described the Mooloolaba Beach Holiday Park as a key economic hub for the area, welcoming "countless holidaymakers" over the years.

Many had created fond memories and forged lifelong friendships.

But, he said, it needed to be upgraded from the ground up to ensure it remained contemporary and provided the modern park facilities expected by guests.

"The current layout has 75 small powered caravan sites that have proven difficult to access," he explained.

"Visitors will have the choice of 60 larger sites, all with improved access, new amenities including a camp kitchen with beach views, some elevated camp sites and improved connections to the beachside boardwalk."

He said the prime site was being redeveloped in keeping with the design of the Mooloolaba Placemaking Plan for the Mooloolaba foreshore.

"Over the past five years, council has increased the number of sites available at its holiday park network by 99 across the region, strengthening our commitment to deliver this service for our residents and visitors," he said.

Ron and Dawn Edwards, from Brisbane, have been holidaying at the park for 17 years, meeting people who have gone on to become "really dear friends".

"We love this holiday park due to the location and everything is within a few steps to shops and restaurants," Mr Edwards said.

"We canít wait for the new facilities to be done and to return in 2020 to enjoy them.

"The aspects we're looking forward to are the larger sites and upgraded facilities to make it a truly A1 standard."

Construction is scheduled to start on July 1 next year and is anticipated to take around five months to complete, hopefully opening in time for Christmas.

Income generated from the Sunshine Coast Holiday Parks business unit will fund the project.

Sunshine Coast Council operates beachside holiday parks at Dicky Beach, Mooloolaba, Maroochydore, Cotton Tree, Mudjimba and Coolum.
