Cowra Shire Council General Manager, Paul Devery said, “the team effort in the past year from Council staff and Cowra Van Park Managers, Mitch and Stacey Barrett has been tremendous.”

“The five month-long renovation included a meticulous inspection of each cabin, ensuring that the damage caused by the flood was addressed comprehensively.”

Key highlights of the renovation work include - welded vinyl flooring, vinyl planks, kitchen installations, painting completion, and air conditioner installation.

The management of Cowra Van Park has commenced taking bookings for the holiday period with interest already proving popular.

“Council and park management are committed to providing a safe, comfortable, and modern accommodation experience for visitors,” he said.

“Mitch and Stacey have been very patient while we worked through the insurance process and I know they are optimistic about the enhanced experience it will offer to visitors with these upgraded facilities,” said Mr. Devery.
