The Skenes Creek Foreshore Caravan Park has been redeveloped after major works commenced in August.

Two new demountable buildings have been installed, along with a new reception building, a new toilet and amenities block with kitchen facilities and it all complies with the Disability Discrimination Act.

The Great Ocean Road Coast and Parks Authority took control of the caravan park in December 2020, and earlier this year undertook a safety audit on the park and its facilities, revealing several safety issues and hazards including the on-site kiosk which was removed in August.

As a result of the audit, the park had been operating at limited capacity, impeded further by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Geelong groups SCAADA and Formflow were used for construction with the park now ready for full capacity, and ready to show off brand new facilities just in time for School Holidays

The project has been funded by the Labor State Government, part of a nearly $20m project for the Great Ocean Road 

Great Ocean Road Coast and Parks Authority CEO, Jodie Sizer said the community is looking forward to the finished product 

“Like the Skenes Creek community and regular visitors to the area, we have been eagerly anticipating getting the much-loved Skene Creek Foreshore Caravan Park back open for business.”

“This project will deliver a vastly improved camping experience and amenity for the local community, and we are rapt to welcome everyone back in time for the peak summer season.”

SCAADA Group Managing Director, Dale Smith said he’s proud they were involved

“SCAADA Group is extremely excited to be part of this fantastic project. We look forward to bringing a modern, sustainable touch to an amazing part of Australia with a progressive and enthusiastic client.”
