New home base for nomads

A caravan park giving travelling nomads the opportunity to have a permanent base has been launched central NSW.The new concept is the brainchild of retirees Janet Kelly and Graeme Booker who moved to Coolah recently and purchased the town’s picturesque riverside caravan park.

Now re-named the Coolah Home Base and Caravan Park, it has been set up as a cooperative, allowing buyers to take a share in the property.

This gives them exclusive rights to a particular site or cabin, which can be used as a home base and leased to others when they’re not using it.

Most of the sites have already been sold and Ms Kelly said any remaining spots would go to members of caravan clubs by “invitation only”.

She said the concept had been highly successful and expects the same model could be used to develop more caravan parks around Australia.

Ms Kelly said attractions and facilities in Coolah are well suited to Grey nomad travellers and the central location is ideal for interstate travellers.

“We’ve also introduced a Happy Hour every day at 4.30, which has proved extremely popular,” she said.
