Boreen Point Campground amenities upgrade now complete

Modern new amenities, complete with family bathrooms and additional unisex toilets await guests at Boreen Point Campground from today.

The refurbishment is an initiative of the Queensland Government, delivered as part of a $2 million Unite and Recover funding package for Noosa.

Mayor Clare Stewart said the project delivered a more functional layout, plus new tiles, paint, benches, sinks and mirrors among other fixtures and fittings.

“Boreen Point Campground welcomes more than 9000 visitors every year,” she said.

“These new facilities will ensure guests enjoy a more contemporary, comfortable, safe and family-friendly holiday experience for many years to come.”

The facilities are painted in a fresh new colour scheme to complement the natural beauty of the campground’s lake setting.

The $450,000 investment also includes improvements to water treatment facilities and the replacement of concrete water storage tanks. This work will be completed shortly.

The Mayor said the upgrade work was one of more than 10 infrastructure projects Council had fast-tracked with the state funding.

“We’re incredibly fortunate to have received the $2 million Unite and Recover funding on top of the $1.83 million the Queensland Government distributed previously during the COVID-19 pandemic,” the Mayor said.

“We’ve made sure the bulk of the funding goes to projects that provide tangible benefits to our community.”

Other projects include upgrades to more than 10 ageing toilet facilities across the shire, plus playground upgrades, while work will soon begin on new laundry and bathroom facilities at Youturn Youth Support to help those who are at-risk, vulnerable and homeless in Noosa.
