Aussie Town Hopes To Be RV Friendly
Cardwell and District Community Association's Caroline Mewing believes the town in Queensland, Australia, has the space but would need to develop some additional facilities to accommodate larger groups of travelers, the Australian Broadcasting Corp. North Queensland reported.
"They need a dump point which is somewhere to unload some of their waste product from their vans… but the RV associations they are willing to contribute funds towards that so that it is not too much of a burden on councils," she said.
Mewing said the town's existing caravan parks are 'really good' but their layout and facilities are more suited more to families, backpackers and fishing holidaymakers.
"And as they have put that infrastructure in – villas and backpacker accommodation… they have lost ground for the carvanners and some of the caravans have become bigger so you need quite a bit of space," she said.
Campervan and Motorhome Club of Australia's Ken Kipping said grey nomads add loads of value to the communities they visit both economically and socially and Cardwell could benefit from that.
