Lower Eyre Peninsula District Council (Australia) will proceed with its involvement with Eyes on Eyre to develop a campground at Fishery Bay after receiving federal government funds.

According to a report, around AU$1.7 million from the Australian government’s AU$20-million Recreational Fisheries and Camping Facilities Program has been allocated to 15 projects in South Australia.

The council has been given AU$135,544 for the project of nearly AU$170,000 at Fishery Bay, which will consist of the delineation of three campsites, pedestrian beach access, enhancements to vehicles, and parking for cars, along with the installation of fire pits, garbage bins and signs.

The Council’s Chief Executive Officer Delfina Lanzilli stated that this grant opportunity was exciting because it will enhance the experience of visitors, as well as safeguard the environment at Fishery Bay.

“Council has been working with Regional Development Australia for almost three years and as part of their Eyes on Eyre Project supported the works at Fishery Bay which include developing a formal campground to improve the beach access to visitors,” Lanzilli said.

Eyes on Eyre aims to create infrastructure to enhance visitors’ experience on the Eyre Peninsula while protecting the natural habitat.

Lanzilli stated that the council believed it was essential to ensure that camping was managed effectively throughout the district for locals and visitors and had recently implemented a camping permit system.

“This online booking process will assist in controlling the use of our designated campgrounds and help towards protecting our pristine natural environment,” she said.

Lanzilli expressed that the council had recently formalized camping at several locations such as Fishery Bay, Seal Corner, Frenchman’s, Greenly Beach, and Point Drummond, where the future groundwork was planned throughout the year. This is on top of the campgrounds at Farm Beach and Louth Bay.
