Point Turton Caravan Park: four new powered sites

Enhancing the visitor experience

Major upgrades at Yorke Peninsular council parks

Have your say

YORKE Peninsula Council in South Australia has installed a variety of new accommodation options and infrastructure upgrades throughout three of its premier caravan parks.

Projects include new self-contained villa accommodation, outdoor equipment and landscaping as well upgrades to powered sites at the Marion Bay, Point Turton and Port Vincent Foreshore caravan parks.

The newly renovated parks will remain at the forefront of the tourism industry on the peninsula and continue to provide a major contribution to its tourism economy.

Council chief executive Andrew Cameron said tourism was a critical economic driver for the region and the upgrades enhanced the visitor experience.

"Year on year, our summer occupancy demand continues to outstrip availability and by providing a variety of accommodation options we are meeting the needs of all niche markets," he said.

At Marion Bay Caravan Park, four new two-bedroom villas have been completed, with two being disability compliant.

All villas have a deck with sea views and sleep a maximum of six people.

Free mountain bike hire, giant chess and
a kangaroo jumper

Outdoor activities at the park include free mountain bike hire including a fun tandem bike, giant chess and a kangaroo jumper for the little people.

Point Turton Caravan Park has installed three LuxePods which are the first of their kind built in a caravan park.

Two of them have two bedrooms with the third being a three bedroom/two bathroom spacious family accommodation.

All are built on the upper level of the park with breathtaking views of Hardwicke Bay.

Four new lawned powered sites have also been included on the upper level.

Mountain bikes are available for free hire to tour Point Turton surrounds or for use on the Walk the Yorke trail.

A luxurious three-bedroom villa has been completed at the Port Vincent Foreshore Caravan Park.

It is situated on the northern tip of Surveyor Point with a deck overlooking the spectacular 270-degree views of St Vincent Gulf and the Bay.

It sleeps up to eight people and contains a luxury ensuite with spa bath and a disabled compliant second bathroom.

The eastern caravan sites have been newly landscaped with luxurious lawn.

Activity additions include free mountain bike hire, giant chess, Connect 4 and a kangaroo jumper.

As a silver award winner at the 2016 SA Tourism Awards and a regular winner of the YP Tourism Awards Most Outstanding Tourist and Caravan Park, the Port Vincent Foreshore Caravan Park continues to be a major drawcard to the region.

Scenic Selfie frames were installed in all three towns last year and have been extremely popular with both locals and tourists, contributing to increased marketing of the peninsula.
