Almost $700,000 worth of extensions to the highly popular Mudjimba Beach Holiday Park are being enjoyed by local campers and visitors alike ahead of the June-July school holidays.

The upgrade includes a new amenities building, camp kitchen and laundry, as well as new pathways and drainage improvements.

It follows a previous expansion in 2016 when an additional 46 sites were constructed.

In the two years since, the park’s occupancy has increased by 47% from 31,400 site nights in 2015/16 to 46,100 site nights in 2017/18.

This latest upgrade is one of many improvements Sunshine Coast Council has made to its holiday parks this financial year, with others including:

  • Mudjimba Beach Holiday Park administration office upgrade – $80,000
  • Coolum Beach Holiday Park drainage improvements – $30,000

Division 8 and Tourism, Sport and Major Events Portfolio Councillor Jason O’Pray said the upgrade had made a big difference to park visitors.

“Mudjimba Beach Holiday Park is a genuine drawcard for visitors to our region and the construction of a new amenities block is a fantastic addition which has really added value to what is a much-loved facility,” Cr OPray said.

“It’s a great spot to relax – locals love to come here to Mudjimba for a weekend break or a staycation, and of course we have visitors come here from around Australia.”

The holiday park upgrades are funded through Sunshine Coast Council’s Capital Works Program.

Council will deliver further upgrades in the 2018-19 financial year:

  • A new undercover camp kitchen at Coolum Beach Holiday Park – $230,000
  • A new amenities block to replace an existing building at Cotton Tree Holiday Park – $700,000

Council operates six beachside holiday parks at Dicky Beach, Mooloolaba Beach, Maroochydore Beach, Cotton Tree, Mudjimba Beach and Coolum Beach.
