Upgrades to boost tourism in West Wyalong

Media release | 29 August 2022

Upgraded facilities at West Wyalong Caravan Park are set to attract more tourists and travelling workers looking for modern, clean and affordable accommodation.

A $533,412 investment by the NSW Government’s Crown Reserves Improvement Fund has replaced a dilapidated front office and upgraded three amenities blocks with new ceilings, roofs and floor tiles.

The West Wyalong Caravan Park upgrade was managed by Bland Shire Council which also contributed $50,000 to the project. The refurbishment included nine new stainless-steel toilets, vanities, mirrors and partitions.

The upgrades will ensure visitors get a warm welcome in a new modern front office, setting the tone for their stay at the caravan park in the heart of West Wyalong.

Minister for Lands and Water Kevin Anderson said the caravan park is on Perseverance Street Recreation Reserve, a Crown reserve, with the Crown Reserves Improvement Fund providing grants to enhance reserves and community infrastructure on them.

“Our investment provided jobs for local tradespeople when they were needed most – when the community was feeling the effects of the downturns caused by COVID and the ongoing impact of the last drought,” Mr Anderson said.

“Crown reserves play a critical role in protecting the environment and supporting communities with everything from ovals, parks and green open space to community halls.”
