Five brand new cabins at Mortlake Caravan Park (Australia) have been an instant hit, with high demand during the holiday season.
The cabins were constructed in November and made available for December reservations.
Ballarat’s Trish Wilson had the honor of being the initial guest in the newly constructed cabins and was awarded an AU$100 gift certificate for a returning visit.
Moyne Shire Council Mayor Cr Ian Smith said the new cabins have increased the tourism accommodation options in Mortlake and could also result in flow-on effects for the town.
“More accommodation options will encourage people to stay in town. We know when visitors to the region stay overnight, their spending increases as they visit local businesses, and the longer they stay, the more that spend increases,” Cr Smith said.
“Council’s investment is good news for everyone – visitors have even more options for accommodation, and local businesses will enjoy the benefits of extra visitation.”
“The Mortlake Caravan Park is in a great spot right beside Tea Tree Lake, and the new cabins have really enhanced the offering and will encourage people to stay for longer. They are proving popular already with strong bookings right across the holiday period.”
Moyne Shire Council invested AU$360,000 from the Australian Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program to build five studio cabins.
Each studio cabin can sleep two guests. They are self-contained, with kitchen facilities and bathrooms. One cabin is accessible to people using mobility aids.
