A plan to restore an RV park in Uralla’s Queen Street has been completed. Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall inspected the new amenities at the popular site last week, a report said.
Marshall says the series of upgrades have made the park owned by the council suitable for a queen.
“With the easing of COVID-19 restrictions in regional NSW, the ongoing flow of tourist dollars is just what Uralla needs to recover from the drought and pandemic,” Marshall said.
“To accommodate modern caravans and motorhomes, Council has improved access for vehicles and pedestrians by upgrading internal roads and footpaths,” he said.
“The onsite amenities have received a fresh coat of paint, and its stormwater drainage renewed, while the electrical services have been updated to ensure powered sites are safe and capable of providing the electricity needs of campers.
“Finally, the all-important caretaker’s residence has been refurbished to provide comfort for those who keep the park maintained.
“Located a block from Uralla’s bustling main street, the Queen Street Caravan Park is sure to continue to play an important role in channeling visitors and dollars into local businesses.”
Uralla Shire Mayor Michael Pearce said the Queen Street Caravan Park located into a bend in Rocky Creek offered visitors a peaceful and tranquil location just a few blocks away from New England Highway.
“The upgrades, together with the recent addition of the playground next door in Alma Park and camp kitchen, enhance the camping, caravan, and motorhome experience for retirees and families visiting Uralla,” he said.
The project was financed by a $54,000 NSW Drought Stimulus grant from last year.
