Through the state’s regional tourism grant, Pine Hill Caravan Park on Victoria’s Warburton Highway (Australia) will be receiving an upgrade, a report said.
The caravan park was one of three to receive funding in the next Regional Tourism Investment Fund round, as announced on August 8.
“Many Victorians have cherished childhood memories from stays at caravan and holiday parks across the state, which collectively provide more accommodation to domestic tourists than any other sector in Victoria,” Tourism, Sport, and Major Event minister Steve Dimopoulos said.
“These three projects will deliver even more holidaymakers to Victoria’s regions – and with even more to offer, they’ll stay longer, supporting local businesses and the people behind them.”
With the AU$525,000, Lilydale Pine Hill Caravan Park will build 14 new cabins as well as an amenities block with mountain bike equipment and a pet wash area.
The other parks that received funding were Wimmera Mallee Cabins (AU$3 million) and Edenhope Lakeside Caravan Park (AU$1 million) for the construction of cabins and modernization of its facilities, respectively.
Over 1.9 million visitors stayed overnight in a caravan park or campground in Victoria in 2019, driving tourism to local communities and supporting businesses across the state.
“Caravan parks remain such an integral way for Victorians to explore and enjoy what this great state has to offer,” Victorian Caravan Parks Association CEO Scott Parker said.
