    Further detailed design works are now being progressed to inform the overall staging process. The Karri Terrace is currently being assessed for its viability to be a dedicated area for the long and short stay users of the park which will enable the reconfiguration of sites within the Dekkers and Circle area. This will better cater for modern day caravans and improve facilities.

    • Promote a safe, inclusive and family friendly park
    • Enhance park layout and accessibility
    • Provide diverse accommodation options that will encourage greater visitation to Augusta during the off peak season
    • Protect and enhance the natural environment

    The draft concept plan aims to:

    • Promote a safe, inclusive and family friendly park
    • Enhance park layout and accessibility
    • Provide diverse accommodation options that will encourage greater visitation to Augusta during the off peak season
    • Protect and enhance the natural environment

    Key challenges:

    • Historical park with ageing infrastructure that is required to meet modern legislative requirements
    • Incompatibility of site use (short and long stay) within some sections of the park
    • Managing fire and hazardous tree risks
    • Ensuring that the park provides a sufficient return to finance infrastructure renewal

    Key initiatives:

    • Caravans will have access to larger sites, drive through access and stand-alone ensuites
    • New and upgraded amenities
    • Alternative exit (at Albany Terrace) supporting emergency evacuations
    • Dedicated area for short and long stay users including provision of storage facilities
    • Chalet accommodation to be increased and diversified
    • Group accommodation
    Community engagement on the draft plan was conducted over November 2018.
