Sunshine Coast local councillors have given the green light for an interim policy on limited facilities camping. This means Caravanners will soon be able to enjoy more affordable stays on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.
Allowing for more freedom to approve basic overnight camping areas on the holiday strip, which attracts millions of travellers and families every year, many of them caravanners.
“The interim policy provides a clear framework for council to approve limited facilities camping without the need to satisfy the requirements that are ordinarily applied to accommodation parks” the report said.
The report stressed that limited facilities camping would serve a different tourism market than that of catered for in caravan parks, which have recently come under fire from many unhappy travellers because of their high site fees and lack of facilities for pets.
Under this new policy, overnight sites will only provide rubbish bins, water access, toilets and/or a dump point and most of the time that’s all some caravanners need.
Permits would be issued for a maximum of 12 months.
Motosport RV welcomes this news as we have noticed a huge increase in our Caravan sales have been to many families who just need a short weekend away break without all the added extras of a hotel stay or a fancy Caravan park. With a Caravan you can pack up the family and have all the comforts from home and just relax. Some of these overnight council facilities are so close to the beach and the main shopping strip that you really don’t need much else.
