Have your say

A CAMP kitchen overlooking the water and new playground facilities will be built at Bribie Island's popular Bongaree Caravan Park in Queensland.

Moreton Bay Regional Council has allocated $260,000 in its 2017-18 budget for the new facilities.

"I'm very pleased," local councillor Brooke Savige told Caravanning News.

"I'm passionate about supporting and growing Bribie's tourism industry, which is why I like to see investment from council in the council-owned park. I expect work will begin on the new facilities early in the new financial year."

She said that last year, more than 11,000 people visited the park. She believed a new camp kitchen and playground facilities would help lift the visitor experience, particularly for young families.

"With Bongaree Caravan Park overlooking the breathtaking Pumicestone Passage, Id love to see the new camp kitchen, if approved, designed with a spacious deck so visitors can take in the amazing water views.

'I think it would be a fantastic drawcard for visitors to the park'

"I think it would be a fantastic drawcard for visitors to the park."

Cr Safige thought a new playground would also help to keep children entertained, while their families relaxed and enjoyed the tranquil environment.

"I might be biased but I truly believe Bribie Island is one of South East Queensland's most beautiful hidden gems, and by improving the park's facilities I hope to attract more visitors to our shores and see more people supporting our local tourism operators, cafes, restaurants and shops."

A new camp kitchen and playground would add to the range of "fantastic facilities" already on offer at the park.

Bongaree Caravan Park was an ideal location for visitors to base themselves while they enjoyed all that Bribie Island had to offer, she said.

They could relax on Woorim's ocean beach, take in Bribie's great range of shops, cafes and restaurants, fish or 4WD on the beach.

Bongaree Caravan Park offers a variety of accommodation options, from camping to caravans, as well as on-site holiday villas and cottages.

There is also a BBQ area, large amenities block and a coin operated laundry.

"Visitors can enjoy the spectacular views of the Pumicestone Passage, the Glasshouse Mountains and the Redcliffe Peninsula, while being just a short walk away from calm beaches, great fishing spots and local shops and restaurants," Cr Savige added.
