Beachmere Caravan Park’s new managers excited by potential
Published 04 September 2023
Beachmere’s cosy seaside caravan park is in safe hands with management responsibilities awarded to a Moreton Bay couple with over thirty years’ experience in the tourism industry.
Dereck and Carol Elvin will take over management of the Beachmere Caravan Park in the coming months following a successful tender bid from the locals who have extensive caravan park operation experience and currently manage the Bongaree Caravan Park on Bribie Island.
Mayor Peter Flannery said the coastal village of Beachmere could continue to welcome tourists from far and wide thanks to this new arrangement.
“For an affordable, quiet and restful holiday, you cannot go past Moreton Bay’s caravan and camping parks,” he said.
“We welcome over four million visitors from far and wide each year to our region to enjoy our coast, our hinterland and a taste of our lifestyle, so it is critical we have experienced tourism operators like the Elvins on our team to manage local attractions and accommodations."
Cr Mark Booth (Division 2) said Council was working hard to bring tourists and income to the region.
“Council, in line with our Tourism Opportunity Plan, is working to keep visitors in the region for longer, putting tourism dollars back into our local communities,” Cr Booth said.
“Ensuring our caravan parks are in good hands is just one way we are helping to boost our tourism offering and our local economy.
“Council is looking forward to working with the new managers to ensure the Beachmere Caravan Park is well looked after and well run.
“We want to see this Moreton Bay asset reach its full potential for the betterment of the Beachmere community and our region.”
Responsibilities of the caravan park management team will include, as per Council agreement, administration and financial management, maintenance of all amenities, marketing, bookings and customer service.
