Bunbury Update May 2021


It looks like the two year (free overnight) trial is ending

It looks like this will be a permanent fixture, and the free campsite (it is only a carpark, for self contained) will stay open

Representative of the caravan parks is against it

But...

Mayor rightfully said that most people who stop at the free camps, do not normally use caravan parks

You still have to go to the Tourist info center, and obtain a permit, (I suppose this is to make sure you abide by the rules)

I note that the "Discovery" representative suggested that people who "Free-camp" spend less than those staying in Caravan Parks - He didn't suggest that free-campers didn't increase the overall income to the districts.
He espoused that they justify high prices because they offer water parks and jumping pillows, which has been the contention of GN's for years - We don't want or need their Kiddie Playgrounds - Most of us aged GN's would only fill their local hospitals if we attempted the rides and jumping pillows, then they would complain that there was not enough Medical Services in their Districts.
