Tawonga Caravan Park future looks bright

Tawonga Caravan Park future looks bright

Council has welcomed an announcement by the Victorian Government to fund a $2.1 million upgrade to the Tawonga Caravan Park.

The popular caravan park, located on the banks of the Kiewa River, closed earlier this month.

Managed by the Department of Environment Land Water and Planning (DELWP) and run by a private operator, the park faced an uncertain future, due in part to wastewater management issues.

Alpine Shire Council Mayor Peter Roper said the funding is essential to reopen the park and will provide a valuable boost to the local economy.

“This is fantastic news – it will breathe new life into this popular caravan park, attract visitors to the region and help support our local businesses,” he said.

“This funding will allow 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.

“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.”

Council will keep community and visitors informed on next steps and time frames.
