Woodgate Beach Holiday Park plans to expand

Woodgate Beach Holiday Park development
The NRMA Woodgate Beach Holiday Park has lodged development plans with Council to add more caravan sites and introduce mini golf.

The NRMA Woodgate Beach Holiday Park has lodged plans with Council to add more caravan sites and a mini golf course.

The beachfront 3.6 hectare park already offers a range of accommodation options, including camping and caravan sites, houses, villas and newly opened glamping tents.

The proposed extension would see the holiday park add 19 new caravan sites and a 150m mini golf course, two ensuite cabins and a new internal road.

The development application, recently lodged with Bundaberg Regional Council, seeks a material change of use in response to “increasing demand”.

“The expansion is responding to the tourism market, specifically the increasing demand for caravan sites, noting the tourist park also offers houses, villas and cabins,” the application states.

“The additional caravan sites and new internal roadway logically and cohesively extends upon the current tourist park layout.”

The application says the development would “achieve a compact, efficient and functional urban form and maintain Woodgate’s small-scale coastal character”.

It also highlighted the park’s “contribution towards growing the local tourism industry to ensure a more diversified and resilient regional economy”.

The demand for the park was evident when earlier this year the NRMA Woodgate Beach Holiday Park received the most bookings of any NRMA tourist facility in Australia as part of a national marketing campaign.

At the time, park manager Dean Beer said the popularity of the park just kept building.

“We are at capacity most weekends and our mid-week bookings have also been great,” Dean said.

“From now right through to the end of January bookings are very heavy.

“Obviously the pandemic has encouraged many people to seek a getaway from their homes and we are finding that a lot of our bookings are coming from locations close to the Bundaberg Region.”

The application for the NRMA Woodgate Beach Holiday Park material change of use is currently with Council’s development group for assessment.
