Noosa River caravan park Have your say

A NEW operator will take over the reins of the council-owned Noosa River Holiday Park this month.

The local council has awarded experienced management company 1EIGHT ‒ which operates caravan parks, campgrounds and cabins along the Sunshine State's coastline and in the outback ‒ a five-year contract to run the
heritage-listed park, with further options to extend.

Mayor Clare Stewart said the company was an experienced provider of accommodation management services, adopting an innovative and modern approach.

"1EIGHT manages seven other holiday parks in Queensland, including Noosa Council's other campgrounds at Noosa North Shore and Boreen Point so they have a sound track record, and we know firsthand the good job they do," she said.

1EIGHT was one of two companies to tender for the contract, with the current operator opting not to apply for a further term.

"We will start a contractor handover period early this month and look forward to working with 1EIGHT as they take the reins," the mayor said.

"We thank our outgoing operators for the great work they've done overseeing the management of the popular holiday park over the past five years."

Noosa River Holiday Park offers 102 powered sites and 22 unpowered ones, with the riverfront facility accommodating more than 15,000 domestic and internal visitors each year.

The site is a State Government Reserve for Camping & Recreation under control of the council as trustee.

The new contract will pave the way for a range of innovations to enhance the guest experience at the holiday park.
