VICTORIA'S Alpine Shire Council has welcomed news that the State Government will fund a $2.1 million upgrade at Tawonga Caravan Park.

Located on the banks of the Kiewa River at the foot of Mt Bogong 300km north east of Melbourne, the 125-site park closed earlier this month.

It is managed by the Department of Environment Land Water and Planning and run by a private operator.

The park faced an uncertain future, due in part to wastewater management issues.

Mayor Peter Roper said the funding was essential to reopen the park and would provide a valuable boost to the local economy.

"This is fantastic news," he said.

"It will breathe new life into this popular caravan park, attract visitors to the region and help support our local businesses."

Cr Roper welcomed the funding which would allow the council to upgrade the park, take over the existing committee of management and source a private operator.

"There are on-site wastewater management constraints due to the area available and proximity to the river, so works to connect the park to reticulated sewer are a vital step," he said.

"We will also be able to upgrade facilities and secure an operator to run the park, ensuring this important tourism destination remains a fantastic asset for the Kiewa Valley well into the future."

He said the council would keep the community and visitors informed on the next steps and time frames.
