FAN­TAS­TIC IDEA

Weekend Courier - - Opinion -

THANK you Peter Ed­wards for your fan­tas­tic sug­ges­tion of a touris­tonly car­a­van park in Point Peron. Your views of a har­mo­nious mix of peo­ple qui­etly en­joy­ing na­ture and holidaying is a stroke of ge­nius. So who out there re­mem­ber Rock­ing­ham’s first car­a­van park, Sun­ray Vil­lage (cor­ner of Kent Street and Pat­ter­son Road) - now gone? Palm Beach car­a­van park - now gone. RSL car­a­van park at Point Peron also now gone. Did you know that statis­tics of 2016 shows there was over 610,000 car­a­vans and mo­torhomes regis­tered in Aus­tralia that year? There are even more now. Imag­ine the tourists (prob­a­bly even lo­cals as well) flock­ing to our Man­gles Bay Car­a­van Park right on the beach, over­look­ing our beau­ti­ful Cock­burn Sound and its is­lands. The re­tirees en­joy­ing our restau­rants, chil­dren en­joy­ing our beaches, in­ter­na­tional tourists see­ing our mag­nif­i­cent Aus­tralian coast from eco-friendly van­tage points and tourist op­er­a­tors. Lo­cal busi­ness of all forms will ben­e­fit from in­creased trade gen­er­ated from the tourists. I'm sure more sight­see­ing tours, cafes etc will pop up em­ploy­ing our lo­cal peo­ple to staff them.
