New-look van park to reopen as bookings flow in
THE opening date of a holiday favourite destination has been locked in as a multimillion-dollar revamp draws nearer to completion.
Sunshine Coast Council undertook a $3.8 million upgrade of the Mooloolaba Beach Holiday Park, after demolishing the old holiday park in July.
The revamped holiday park, at the gateway between the Mooloolaba Esplanade, the Spit and The Wharf, now featured 59 large sites with improved access and new amenities including a camp kitchen.
Landscaping was also carried out while beachside boardwalk connections were also upgraded.
Mayor Mark Jamieson confirmed the new-look holiday park would reopen on Saturday, December 14.
The park was already fully booked until late-January.
“The revamped holiday park has been designed with the industry trend for larger caravans, motorhomes and camping trailers front of mind,” Cr Jamieson said.
Division 4 Councillor John Connolly said the beach holiday park was a vibrant part of Mooloolaba and he was excited for guests to start arriving at the popular location.
“The old holiday park was very tired and needed a lot of work, I think this redevelopment is fantastic for the tourism industry and our local economy,” Cr Connolly said.
