$3.5 million investment in Mooloolaba Beach Holiday Park

Published:

To ensure Mooloolaba caters for the changing needs of travellers, Sunshine Coast Council is investing $3.5 million to redevelop the Mooloolaba Beach Holiday Park, a key economic hub for the area.

Division 4 Councillor John Connolly said the holiday park at Parkyn Parade had welcomed countless holidaymakers over the years, many of them creating fond memories and forging lifelong friendships.

“It’s now time for this popular holiday park to be upgraded from the ground up to ensure it remains contemporary and provides the modern park facilities expected by our guests,” Cr Connolly said.

“The industry trend for larger caravans, motorhomes and camping trailers requires larger sites.

“The current layout has 75 small powered caravan sites that have proven difficult to access.

“Visitors will have the choice of 60 larger sites, all with improved access, new amenities including a camp kitchen with beach views, some elevated camp sites and improved connections to the beachside boardwalk.

“This prime site is being redeveloped in keeping with the design of the Mooloolaba Placemaking Plan for the Mooloolaba foreshore.

“Over the past five years, council has increased the number of sites available at its holiday park network by 99 across the region, strengthening our commitment to deliver this service for our residents and visitors.”
 
Ron and Dawn Edwards, from Brisbane, have been holidaying at Mooloolaba Beach Holiday Park for the past 17 years, meeting a number of people over the years who have gone on to become “really dear friends”.

“We love this holiday park due to the location and everything is within a few steps to shops and restaurants,” Ron said.

“We can’t wait for the new facilities to be done and to return in 2020 to enjoy them.

“The aspects we’re looking forward to are the larger sites and upgraded facilities to make it a truly A1 standard.”

Cr Connolly said the upgrade was one of many Mooloolaba infrastructure projects council was investing in to create a world-class destination for our residents and visitors to enjoy.

“Coinciding with the redevelopment of the Mooloolaba Beach Holiday Park, will be the renewal of the northern section of the Mooloolaba boardwalk,” he said.

“By undertaking both projects simultaneously, we will be able to better address the boundary treatments, access and, most importantly, minimise disruption during construction.”

Construction is scheduled to start on July 1, 2019 and is anticipated to take around five months to complete, opening in time for Christmas, weather permitting.

Income generated from the Sunshine Coast Holiday Parks business unit will fund the project.
