Easter important information
4 x PUBLIC HOLIDAYS. The wages for our Park staff and the large amount of security people we have to bring in for Easter represent an outrageous cost such that we will be losing money no matter what for this period.
So we don’t like the prices we have to charge for Easter.
We are very unhappy about them.
We would prefer to not be open at all, but there are events on during Easter meaning it is incumbent upon us to stay open no matter our losses might be.
SECURITY – We have a large, 24 hour security team on site during Easter as we have to completely lock down the whole site and its environs. This will mean that security passes for persons and vehicles will be in use, as well as 24 hour staffing. Photo ID and correct records of all names and number plates of persons in your party are crucial to avoid problems on site.
Stawell C & C (Grampians Gate) Lakeside 2 Burgh st
NO AVAILABILITY OF UNPOWERED OR CAMPING SITES. Due to CFA policy requiring fire hose reels within close proximity of all occupants, we are no longer allowed to offer camping or unpowered sites. This will only change if at some time in the future, the council decides to install new fire hose reels in the so-called “bushland” locations of the park. Note that these restrictions apply to us because we are a Caravan Park, the same restrictions may not apply to other areas that the Council owns. If you wish to camp, you should look at alternative venues that the Council may have available.
ENQUIRIES or QUESTIONS – Can only be made via the email address firstname.lastname@example.org
