Penrose Park Upgrades: A Boost for Outback Camping and Local Economy

Penrose Park Recreation and Campground in Silverton has witnessed a transformative upgrade, thanks to a AU$2.5 million investment by the NSW Government. This iconic outback oasis, spanning 80 hectares, is now poised to offer an even more enhanced camping experience to its visitors.

The upgrades encompass a range of improvements, from the replacement of aging amenities blocks to the introduction of new power supply points at camping sites. 

Additionally, the park now boasts two new barbecue shelters, a new entry sign, and a display map, ensuring that both overnight campers and day visitors have a memorable experience.

Beyond the physical enhancements, the significance of Penrose Park to the community is profound. Minister for Lands and Propert, Steve Kamper highlighted the park’s role as a cherished destination that has served the community for over a century.

Terina Kingi, the park’s caretaker, echoed this sentiment, emphasizing the park’s allure, which draws an average of 3,500 bookings annually. With attractions like camel rides, a pub, bakery, museum, and art galleries in nearby Silverton, the park’s appeal is multifaceted, according to a news release by the NSW Government.

The Penrose Park upgrades are a part of a broader trend of enhancing camping experiences. Upgraded facilities offer better protection against weather, improved safety, better sleep quality, enhanced food preparation facilities, and more.

The economic and environmental impacts of such upgrades underscore the importance of investing in camping infrastructure. As more people seek out nature-based experiences, ensuring that camping facilities meet modern standards becomes crucial.

The Broken Hill region, where Penrose Park is located, is set to benefit immensely from these upgrades. With the potential to draw more visitors and boost local businesses, the future looks promising.
