Upgrades have been completed at some of Kangaroo Island’s finest camping spots at Murray Lagoon and D’Estrees Bay Tea Trees campgrounds, just in time for the school holidays, a report said.
The Murray Lagoon campground will reopen to the public in April with new facilities that offer a family-friendly environment. The campground will accommodate caravans and camper trailers, has seven large campsites, and an area specifically designed for group camping to accommodate large groups of school children.
In D’estrees Bay, there are six large new campsites, including the brand new Tea Trees campground, which offers an exceptional camping experience that includes breathtaking views of the ocean and views of the bay, and a brand new accessible restroom and picnic shelter within site.
The improvements comprise a portion of the South Australian Government’s $52 million investment in the reconstruction of parks‘ essential infrastructure to help revive and support the economy of Kangaroo Island’s visitors.
Kangaroo Island is one of the most popular tourist destinations in South Australia. Having these modernized campsites completed and ready to go for the school holidays of September is a significant boost.
These kinds of projects assist in reviving the $140 million per year Kangaroo Island tourism industry and the reconstruction of essential infrastructure for visitors that is vital to the social, economic, and environmental rehabilitation of the island and its inhabitants.
