More travellers can now enjoy Blackwood River’s tranquil settings thanks to upgraded amenities and a new accessible chalet at Turner Holiday Park.
An upgraded all-access toilet-shower boosts facilities for camping and holiday park guests. While the Easy Access Chalet sleeping four provides a welcoming stay.
NEW CHALET COMMUNITY-APPROVED
Specialist builders and access consultants assisted in the chalet’s initial plan. The Shire of Augusta’s Community Access and Inclusion Reference Group also influenced its design.
“Turner Caravan Park is located near the beautiful Blackwood River and aims to cater to everyone–and that includes people of all abilities,” says Hettie Enderes, Shire of Augusta Margaret River Holiday Parks and Camping Ground Manager.
“That’s why we went above-and-beyond in improving the park’s accessibility.”
Low bench-tops, wide doors with lever handles, hand-rails and spacious interiors create a welcoming space within the Easy Access Chalet. While the sheltered barbecue area and casual chic interior set the holiday tone.
