Scenic Rim’s Lake Moogerah Caravan Park new management team has settled in and are looking forward to a bustling September school holidays.
Karen Golden, General Manager Tourism and Wellness for BelgraviaPRO said they were excited to operate Lake Moogerah Caravan Park, with the team well-prepared for the upcoming holidays.
“The thriving rural landscape and natural attractions to the region provide opportunity to really change the visitor experience.
“We look forward to partnering with local producers and business, to create unique experiences where visitors can reconnect with nature and make memories that last a lifetime,” Karen said.
“Across Australia and New Zealand, BelgraviaPRO operates 18 parks where we focus on safety, guest experiences and success for our partners within the local region.
“As we continue to embed ourselves in the region, we look forward to contributing to tourism within Scenic Rim and the Lake Moogerah camping experience.”
Scenic Rim Regional Council Mayor Greg Christensen said the Council was delighted to have Belgravia on board to manage one of the region’s most loved camping grounds.
“After a competitive tender process earlier this year, the management contract was awarded to BelgraviaPRO due to their strong track record in leisure management.
“We acknowledge the Mason family who had previously managed the camping ground for many years,” he said.
Cr Christensen it was an exciting time for the many campers who love to stay at Lake Moogerah and enjoy camping out under the stars.
“Council has been very fortunate to receive almost $2.5 million in grants from the Queensland Government to upgrade the caravan park to a more modern standard,” Cr Christensen said.
“We’ve received a grant from the Queensland Government’s COVID Works for Queensland funding to upgrade the electrical infrastructure, and then we were successful in obtaining Unite and Recover funding to upgrade the facilities and amenities.
“This will include new amenity blocks, camping kitchen as well as upgrades to the footpaths and road infrastructure.
“These changes are set to make a big difference to the campers enjoyment during their stay, and importantly the works will help create jobs for local people,” Cr Christensen said.
Karen said the management team would work closely with the appointed contractors to ensure the minimal disruption to visitors.
“We know that visitors come out here to enjoy the ambience of the region, so we will be very mindful of working closely with Council and its contractors to make sure these very important works don’t impact the experience.”
Works on the upgrades will start in September 2020 and are expected to be completed by 30 June 2021.
