Anglesea Family Caravan Park Master Plan

Anglesea Family Caravan Park Master Plan

Background

In July 2017, the Great Ocean Road Coast Committee resumed direct management of the Anglesea Family Caravan Park, committing to a multi-million-dollar investment in the park implemented through a consultative master planning process.

The master plan will guide improvements to the Anglesea park over the next 5 to 10 years. As a member of the public or guest of the Anglesea Family Caravan Park, you provide an important perspective as part of the master planning process.

Where do camping fees go?

The Anglesea Family Caravan Park is managed by the Great Ocean Road Coast Committee – a not-for-profit, community based organisation that manages 37km of Crown coastal reserves between Torquay and Lorne. All dollars raised are reinvested back into the coastal reserves, caravan parks and community.

Great Ocean Road Coast has an ongoing commitment to tourism and business in the Anglesea community through:

  • supporting a number of local events such as Surf Coast Marathon, Rock2Ramp Swim, Surf Coast Century, Roo Run and Grommet Gallop and surf carnivals
  • partnering with community groups for years of conservation and revegetation work across the coast with ANGAIR, volunteers and school groups
  • working with the local surf schools to re-issue surf school licences at Anglesea to support the local surf school industry and local camp accommodation providers
  • funding $100,000 works to address safety concerns with the Anglesea beach access ramp
  • contributing to the salaries of the professional life guards employed by the Anglesea Surf Lifesaving Club
  • leasing the successful Bombora’s Kiosk at Point Roadknight
  • funding the $1.7m build of the Surf Coast Walk and the boardwalk along park-riverbank boundary
  • running our community partnership, Fresh Air Kids Program, with local families, learning through playing in nature.

At the caravan park, we are also committed to:

  • maintaining the park to at least current standards, delivering a multi-million dollar investment package back into the park
  • retaining what people love about the park – safe, secure and family-friendly
  • ensuring an increase of funding into the park, community and the coastline
  • retaining local business and tourism arrangements
  • high levels of customer service through the transition period.

We have a number of other projects happening in the Anglesea region and all along the Great Ocean Road coastline. Visit our projects page to find out more and sign up to the mailing list for all the latest news.

Community consultation

Throughout the summer of 2018-2019 GORCC held nine community consultation sessions across Lorne, Aireys Inlet, Anglesea and Torquay as well as a number of sessions within Anglesea Family Caravan Park to gather feedback on the master plan. Thank you to all who have participated, community consultation has now closed.
