Batlow Caravan Park renos deliver hope to fire-affected families in the Snowy Valleys

Locals impacted by the Dunns Road Fire have a real crack at rebuilding their lives, with Snowy Valleys Council accommodating families at the completely-refurbished Batlow Caravan Park.

Supported guests are staying in six fully self-contained two-bedroom cabins for up to two years at nominal fees, waking up to stunning views overlooking native softwood forest.

Council had installed the tourist cabins earlier than anticipated. With the phase two renovations fast-tracked in time for the caravan park’s relaunch in June this year.

The completely-refurbished caravan park has nine newly-electrified powered sites and a large, lovely campground. The grassy campsites are large and flat with room to accommodate motorhomes, caravans and camper trailers.

Individual family-size bathrooms in a communal block provide extra privacy to campers

All buildings within the park are brand new including the office, camp kitchen and laundry. While wide tarmac road and fencing improve guest safety.

Batlow Caravan Park is within walking distance to town. There’s a golf course nearby, bakery, a supermarket open daily, a gorgeous nursery and mechanic.

Travellers can dine in at the Batlow Hotel or Batlow RSL, or top up their campsite larder with local chestnuts, hazelnuts and apples harvested from the Snowy Valleys’ rich red soils.
