New glamping facilities and all-abilities accommodations are expected to be launched at Apollo Bay (Australia) in time for the following summer.

According to a report, Great Ocean Road Coast and Parks Authority (GORCAPA) is providing a revamp of the bay’s Recreation Reserve, which involves short and long-term actions to enhance the experience for tourists and locals.

GORCAPA has created a community reference group of community members, user groups, and disability advocates for phase one of its camping uplift project.

The first phase will construct ten year-round disability options with associated Changing Places facility, playground, and picnic areas.

Ten more luxury accommodation pods, more powered or unpowered campsites, and improvements to existing facilities, such as the kitchen, security enhancements, and Wi-Fi, are also in plan for stage one.

Construction is expected to begin in June and be completed in the summer.

GORCAPA will also launch the second phase of its project later in the year. It will also implement a caravan park and camping strategy.

The authority will also be looking at additional facilities improvements as part of a ten-year master plan for the reserve, which also houses many Apollo Bay sporting clubs, such as cricket, football-netball, and tennis.

“The master plan will ensure the community and visitor experience is enhanced and will protect and enhance the natural, cultural, coastal, tourism, and local community values of the area. It will be delivered in consultation with partners, stakeholders, and the community,” GORCAPA said.

A few minor improvements are scheduled for this year, further to the west of the Great Ocean Road at Marengo caravan park. It will include road improvements along with playground replacement, lighting improvements, as well as their own master plan.

The projects are part of the AU$2-million government program announced late last year for flagship tourism projects across the Great Ocean Road region.

“Projects like improving camping at the Apollo Bay Recreation Reserve give tourists even more reasons to visit and stay along our beautiful coastline,” Western Victoria MP Gayle Tierney said.
