Over winter the amenity blocks at the Peel Forest Campground, at Peel Forest northwest of Geraldine, have been given a $300,000 facelift.

This is the first of a two-stage infrastructure upgrade and includes new;

  • solar and gas boosted hot water systems
  • accessible toilet and shower rooms
  • roofing and skylights
  • insulated and lined ceilings
  • an additional kitchen and dining area
  • concrete floor sealing
  • shower enclosures and water saving shower heads, timers, taps and cisterns
  • powerboards, sockets and fluorescent lights
  • mirrors and hand-dryers; and
  • painted inside and out.

In addition, a new double garage replaces the old shelter and lean-to store, to improve rubbish collection and other maintenance management.

The second stage, intended to be implemented by the end of June 2010, is a $230,000 upgrade of the water supply and wastewater disposal systems.

The campground re-opened to the public on Thursday 1 October 2009. For further information and to make bookings please contact Ian Walker at the Peel Forest Store on +64 3 696 3567.
