Park gets back on track
MANAR Park is used to a bit of mud, but the floods brought much more mud than the tourist attraction could handle.
The Apex Club of Biggenden has helped with the clean-up and repairs by raising $4076 through a raffle.
The Easter raffle money was presented to Manar Park on May 7 and will help to get the park back on track.
Robyn Laidler, of Manar Park, said the money would be used to get their famous four-wheel drive and motorbike tracks and loops back in order.
“We will use the money to fuel up the dozer or the grader for repairs,” she said.
“The support we have been getting is absolutely tremendous.”
Manar Park was isolated during the flooding and more than 200 guests were stranded.
Food drops and medivac choppers brought some relief during the disaster, but the damage was seen after the waters had receded.
“We were closed for five weeks because of the damage,” Mrs Laidler said.
“All the tracks, the loops and the amenities, they were washed away.”
WELCOME BOOST: There were big smiles from David and Robyn Laidler, of Manar Park, after Biggenden Apex Club president Brent Leaver hands over $4076 to help with flood recovery.
