We’re excited to announce that Kempsey Shire Council will soon begin works on a $3.4 million-dollar revitalisation project to improve the Stuarts Point Foreshore Reserve and Stuarts Point Holiday Park. The transformation will aim to maximise the recreational opportunities for residents and visitors, with a strong focus on making the most of the areas spectacular riverfront setting.
The grant received from the NSW Regional Growth – Environment and Tourism Fund will ensure a number of projects are completed, with the Holiday Park set to receive a new entrance, reception building, managers residence, two way entry/exit road and check in bay and most exciting of all a new amenities building at the northern end of the park. Upgrades to the Foreshore Reserve include –
• New 2-lane boat ramp and car and trailer parking to improve river access
• Relocated fish cleaning table
• Expansion of the riverfront picnic and barbecue area
• New children’s playground and picnic area
• New foreshore pathways
• New public amenities
• An outdoor stage for concerns and local events
• Additional public car parking
• New carpark at the footbridge with accessible parking
• New timber boardwalk along the riverbank
• Work will commence by July 2019 beginning in the boat ramp area, with an expected completion date of Easter 2020.
We’re sure these upgraded community facilities will be a fantastic addition to the town for both residents and our guests. Holiday Park guests can also look forward to concept plan currently underway to improve the configuration of Stuarts Point Holiday Park. This re-configuration will look to ensure the park is as user friendly and spacious as possible while still capturing views of the tranquil Macleay River from as many sites and cabins as possible.
