Park Facilities at Capacity, All-Clear for Algae and Fantastic Fishing at Inland Waters Holiday Parks
IWHP Lake Burrendong Park Manager Jason Kirk said the summer heat has seen the popularity of the park's water slide and kiosk soar.
“We're pleased to see the park so popular and with the earlier blue-green algae alert for the dam wall sample site removed we're only expecting it to get busier,” Mr Kirk said.
“The dam's Red Fin Perch are very active at the moment which is great as fishing is a huge drawcard for the park.”
At nearby IWHP Cudgegong River which is also located on Burrendong Dam, the first week of the year has seen an increase in occupancy at the park showing that the earlier algae alert hasn't deterred the park's visitors.
In the Cowra Region, IWHP Wyangala Waters and IWHP Grabine Lakeside have also seen the recent removal of a blue-green algae alert, putting the parks on track for a positive year. Park Manager James Armstrong said he is pleased with the start to the year for the two parks.
“It's been a positive start to the year with solid occupancy figures recorded and visitors have peace of mind that the dam's blue-green algae alert has been lifted,” Mr Armstrong said.
NSW Crown Holiday Parks Trust (NSWCHPT) CEO Steve Edmonds said that the great start to the year and popularity of the parks' facilities aligns with NSWCHPT's vision.
“The positive start recorded across our parks shows that we are on track to achieve our vision to be the leading provider of recreational destinations that excite guests, energise communities and showcase sensational NSW locations,” Mr Edmonds said.
“Our inland parks offer a quintessential Australian holiday experience.”
