The Sunshine Coast Council has passed a notion to close one of Australia’s beloved caravan sites.
Temporarily, Mooloolaba Beach Holiday Park will become a parking lot over the course of two years.
During this time, the construction of parkland facilities will be underway.
A council spokesperson says this includes, “pathways, a major playground, barbecues, shelters, grassed areas, outdoor fitness equipment and a cove kiosk building.”
Manager of Mooloolaba Beach Holiday Park, Lee Nelson, says the parking lot will be in effect come the 1 July 2017.
“There are two parks in town,” he says. “Ours is the small site on the beach but the main caravan park will be where our jobs will migrate across to.”
Lee is upset by the closure but acknowledges the land is council owned and thus susceptible to their own adjudication.
