The famous Depot Beach campground in Murramarang National Park (Australia) is now open with new amenities that offer guests the same wonderful experience, with a few improvements.

Kane Weeks from the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) said that the project was completed in time to welcome returning campers this summer.

“With up to 200 people able to stay at this beach-side campground at any one time, these new facilities will provide an even better experience for new visitors and those who return year after year,” Weeks said.

Weeks also claimed that amenities are now more accessible to people with limited mobility and families with younger children.

“We have new wheelchair accessible pathways, bathrooms, and showers as well as family-friendly features,” he added.

“There is a new family changeroom with seating, new baby change tables, and instantaneous hot water showers.”

“The brand-new amenities building was designed and positioned to capture plenty of natural light and ventilation.”

Week added that the newly-improved campground also includes off-grid solar power, solar hot water, two new rainwater tanks, and motion-sensing low-voltage lighting.

“Our repeat visitors should be really impressed with the changes as the old amenity building had really reached the end of its life.”

Weeks believes these new little comforts will add up and give visitors an overall enjoyable experience.

“The local building company did an amazing job to get it all done, despite the location, lack of mobile phone reception, the lack of tradies and winter and spring wet weather,” Weeks said.

The construction was carried out as part of the largest investments in the NSW national parks‘ infrastructure history, providing a AU$450-million priority project that will benefit the community and boost nature-based tourism across the state.

Depot Beach campground and cabins are now all open, and visitors may check the availability and reserve sites through the NPWS website.
