Elliott Heads Holiday Park is sporting a fresh new look with renovation works delivering a new camp kitchen, office space and outdoor projector area for movie nights.
Mayor Jack Dempsey welcomed completion of the works, which he said provided greater accessibility and complemented the holiday park’s already world-class facilities.
“I couldn’t be more excited to open this new facility,” Mayor Dempsey said.
“Not only does it build on the already world-class facilities, but it’s been designed to cater to all members of the community and to complement the surrounding pristine environment.”
“With COVID restrictions easing, the completion of these works come at a time when people will be travelling back to our picturesque region, and this is yet another great drawcard for local families and interstate travellers.”
Douglas Tait, Director of 1EIGHT Pty Ltd, who manages Elliott Heads Holiday Park said the building design added to the existing amenities block and tied in with recently completed foreshore works and the surrounding natural environment.
“This is a great example of high-quality council infrastructure works, and what we’ve got now is a world-class facility,” Mr Tait said.
“The project team has done an amazing job. Incorporating access for people with a disability and turtle-friendly lighting into the design helps increase the appeal of staying here.”
Mr Tait said the facilities bring the park in-line with the incredible location, which in turn will attract more travellers into the region and help boost the local economy.
“We’re entering what we believe is the next regional tourism boom,” Mr Tait said.
Holiday Park camp kitchen impresses
Both kitchen stations have a sink, electric start gas cooktop and plenty of bench space.
With its semi-open design, the new holiday park camp kitchen features clear PVC café blinds ensure the dining area can be utilised in poor weather conditions.
Much of the work has been completed by local contractors and it was Bundaberg Constructions who were awarded the tender in 2019.
As Bundaberg Constructions Director Nelson Plowman explained, employing local contractors meant the construction was not hindered by COVID-19 restrictions.
“COVID certainly made things interesting, but we used a lot of local suppliers and all sub-contractors have been local too,” Mr Plowman said.
“Jobs like this that feed into the community, we really enjoy doing.
“I think it’s just an excellent little project for building community within the caravan park and wider region and puts Bundy on the map.”
