RV park launches in Bundaberg

The latest Campervan and Motorhome Club of Australia (CMCA) RV Park has opened in Bundaberg.

The Bundaberg Regional Council recently announced the opening of an RV Park, capable of accommodating up to 50 RVs at any one time. It is located on Burrum St within the old showground, handy to local retail outlets and tourism attractions.

On the council’s website, Bundaberg Regional Council Mayor Jack Dempsey said the addition of the RV Park was another economic driver for the region and supported the region’s RV Friendly status. “The CMCA National Rally last year certainly opened many eyes to the value of the RV market and the positive impact it can have on communities,” Mr Dempsey said.

“Although the park has been opened only a short time and hasn’t had the benefit of widespread promotion, it is already having a positive economic effect on the region.”

CMCA CEO Richard Barwick said the organisation was excited to announce the opening of its 4th RV Park in Australia.

“In our planning, we will develop a significant number of similar parks across the country in the coming years,” he said.

The CMCA RV Park Network provides low-cost, no-frills accommodation for CMCA members with self-contained vehicle accreditation. CMCA has acknowledged the growing need for basic accommodation for self-contained vehicles and has established CMCA RV Parks™ as a way of providing self-contained vehicles with access to secure parking, potable water and dump points.

CMCA RV Parks™ are managed accommodation facilities with fully trained volunteer custodians who live on site to oversee the day-to-day activities and implement park rules.

The CMCA aims to establish up to 80 of these quality RV facilities across Australia during the next five years and is currently engaged with more than 50 councils in five states and territories to identify opportunities.

The Club has support from local governments as it offers low impact, environmentally friendly tourism facilities, mainly in smaller regional locations, that deliver big financial benefits for the community, at absolutely no cost to the local council.
