Have your say

SNOWY Valleys Council will soon manage the Tumbarumba Creek Caravan Park on the south-west slopes of Australia's famous Snowy Mountains.

It will pick up the reins of the small, pet-friendly and family-operated park in New South Wales when the current lease agreement ends at the end of June.

Director of Assets and Infrastructure Matthew Christensen said that while privately-owned cabins and assets were being removed or sold by the vacating lessees, the park itself was not closing.

"Council is in the process of appointing an experienced temporary manager to run the Tumbarumba Creek Caravan Park while further improvement works are completed and we consider long term arrangements for the facility," he said.

"In the meantime it will be business as usual with the new lodges and existing powered and unpowered camp sites still available for booking after June 30."

He said the council's tourism team is managing the park's website and bookings throughout the transition to ensure potential guests could make reservations and continue patronising the park.

A compliance audit of the Batlow Caravan Park had recently been undertaken and a prioritised schedule of upgrades developed, funded by a NSW Government's Major Projects Infrastructure grant.

"Due to the extent of upgrades identified in the audit, the park will fully close for the duration of works," Mr Christensen said.

"Council is working closely with the permanent residents of the park to help secure alternate accommodation."

He said the council was developing a business case to consider its overall strategy around all council caravan parks and how they would operate into the future.

"Development of a business case for possible further investment and lease options for council caravan parks will determine how these assets can be developed into vibrant commercial entities that will support tourism and employment growth in our region," he added.
