THE Goulburn South Caravan Park has been undergoing major renovations over the past few months, receiving its first batch of new cabins last Thursday.

There are also plans for a new children’s playground, putt-putt golf course, and renovations to the current camp kitchen, such as a state of the art wood-fired pizza oven.

The fate of the old caretaker’s building has now finally come to its head, with owner/manager, Matthew Williams, receiving approval from Council to demolish it.

“We received approval from Council to knock down the old caretaker’s building, which is great news, because it will clean up the park’s image no end,” owner/manager Matthew Williams said.

The Council will fork out just over $20,000 to demolish the 50- year-old building, following a closed committee decision at its July 17 meeting.

While councillors originally resisted the cost, legal advice confirmed Council was responsible. It will also allocate up to $20,000 to isolate and disconnect electricity to the house and caravan park during demolition.

In March councillors decided in closed session to allow Southern Cross Parks Pty Ltd to buy all shares in South Caravan Park Pty Ltd.

The latter leased the caravan park from Council but the decision allowed the new company to take over the caravan park’s operation and management from March 12.

Mr Williams originally hails from the Brisbane suburb of Taringa, Queensland.

He has big plans for the caravan park.

“We’ve replaced that caretakers building with a new one we rebuilt ourselves, just on the right hand side of the front entrance, as you drive in,” he said.

“We attract a lot of visitors on their way to or from Sydney or from further afield, and they have all commented on the great job we have done in the renovations.

“I believe we are in a great location, what with the Big Merino, the new Bunnings (coming in August) and the McDonald’s nearby.”

The park’s website is currently under construction, and will be launched soon.
