Australian Campground Getting Big Upgrades
The Charlie Moreland campground and day-use area in Imbil State Forest, near Kenilworth, Queensland, Australia, is set to undergo a total revamp, Noosa News reported.
The $1.539 million ($1.25 million U.S.) project, by Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service, will be completed over the next 14 months to revitalise the area.
Andrew Powell, the area's representative in Parliament, said the campground, situated in open forest beside Little Yabba Creek, was one of Queensland's most popular for families and large groups, but was looking tired.
"Soil has become compacted, the grass is patchy, some large mature gum trees are dropping limbs and are dangerous, the toilets are outdated and don't meet standards," he said.
The upgrade will feature vegetation belts, new toilets and water treatment systems, renewed solar water infrastructure, new furniture and rebuilt pathways in the day-use area.
