Tawonga Caravan Park upgrade moving forward

15 November 2021
Project update

Funded by the Victorian Government and delivered by Council, the project aims to bring the park up to industry standard and support local tourism.  

Alpine Shire Mayor Sarah Nicholas said the upgrade will address current critical infrastructure issues and revamp the park’s amenities.

“We know many visitors love the Tawonga Caravan Park, and have been spending holidays there for years,” she said.

“It’s no secret that the facilities have become run down and the park is in serious need of infrastructure and amenity improvements to ensure it meets requirements to operate.

“It’s an important asset to the local economy, so it’s vital that we bring it to a modern standard while still preserving the character and charm that visitors enjoy so much.”

Earlier in the year Council took over formal management of the site from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP).

Works include upgrades to sewer infrastructure and electrical and fire services.

Cr Nicholas said the majority of the project budget will be used for the service upgrades, particularly in addressing the existing wastewater issues.

“While upgrades to services are essential for the operation of the park, there will also be some refurbishment and construction of park facilities,” she said.

“The general park layout won’t change, but visitors will be able to experience a refreshed version of the park they already know and love.”

The project has been made possible with funding from the Victorian Government and the support of DELWP.

The Tawonga Caravan Park Upgrade will be ready for visitors by mid-September 2022, in time for the Spring 2022 school holidays.
