Gat­ton now RV Friendly Town

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

IN A ma­jor boost for tourism in the re­gion, the Lock­yer Val­ley is now home to an RV Park and can boast the ti­tle of an “RV Friendly Town.”

The park­ing area is lo­cated at William Kemp Park off East Street and is avail­able to all self-con­tained RV ve­hi­cles to park for up to 48 hours dur­ing their trav­els.

With 620,000 reg­is­tered RV’S in Aus­tralia, RV tourism is a ma­jor con­trib­u­tor to the econ­omy and Mayor Tanya Mil­li­gan said the val­ley can now tap into that mar­ket.

“We are all about pro­mot­ing our won­der­ful re­gion as a tourism des­ti­na­tion and to have an RV Park in Gat­ton is a ma­jor step to­wards fur­ther achiev­ing that goal,” Cr Mil­li­gan said.

“The rise of the grey-no­mad has led to a mas­sive surge in the RV Park in­dus­try... there will no doubt be flow-on ef­fects for the lo­cal busi­ness econ­omy as a re­sult of the in­creased traf­fic this fa­cil­ity will bring.”
