Developments and upgrades at Reflections Holiday Parks

< Date: 05 August 2019

With spring just around the corner and the winter chill beginning to thaw out, the team at Reflections Holiday Parks have been busy making upgrades to a number of their parks ahead of the busy summer season.

Upgrade to Sepoy Knob Boat Ramp complete
Copeton Dam levels are currently sitting at 8.9% and boating is about to get even easier thanks to completed upgrades improving access at the park’s Sepoy Knob Boat Ramp.

The boat ramp improvements included a 156m ramp extension and installation of a mobile landing pontoon, and it was a priority regional project made possible by the NSW Government’s Boating Now program.

The upgrading of the Sepoy Knob Boat Ramp at Reflections Holiday Parks Copeton Waters has been an ongoing project over the past five years. This has provided improved all-weather access to the waters of Copeton Dam to all boating enthusiasts, both able bodied and those with disabilities. It also provides for safe access to watercraft and tow vehicles of all shapes and sizes.

Dune stabilisation investment at Clarkes Beach

Reflections Holiday Parks continues the ongoing clean-up and safety work this week at Clarkes Beach in response to the severe erosion experienced in front of the popular park and along the coastline.

The sandbagging commenced at the end of July and saw the placement of more than 600 sand bags containing 720 tonnes of sand at the base of the ravaged dunes in front of the park. The sand bags and other protective works, which will cost Reflections in excess of $250,000 to complete, are designed to create an effective and protective short-term barrier against the relentless effects of the ocean eating away at the dune base.

Modular pump track installation

The installation of an $80,000 modular pump track at the Reflections Holiday Park at Wyangala Waters is already proving a winner with kids of all ages bringing their wheels to the park and enjoying the fun new play space.

The modular pump track is part of a Group-initiative to expand land-based guest offerings across inland parks and provide entertainment for kids.

New Amenities for Brunswick Foreshore Reserves
The Brunswick Foreshore Reserves will be getting a much-needed facelift with construction underway for the upgrade and refurbishment of amenities across Terrace Reserve, Banner Park and Torakina Reserve.

Reflections Holiday Parks CEO Steve Edmonds said Reflections was pleased to have secured $1,227,000 in funding from the NSW Government to provide better amenities for the residents and visitors to the area.

The amenity upgrades across the three reserves, which are expected to be completed progressively over the coming months, include new fixtures, fittings, tiles and painting as well as the inclusion of accessible toilets and showers.

Spring swims on the horizon for Urunga

Construction of a new and improved Urunga Sea Lido are now underway, with Queensland-based EnviroStruct Services Pty Ltd named as the successful contractor of the half a million dollar project.

The original Lido was removed in 1999 and $535,000 in funding has been secured from the NSW Government’s Restart NSW Regional Growth – Environment and Tourism Fund to provide a better facility for the residents and visitors to the area.

The works are set to include:

-A 40-metre long, 1800-wide jetty boardwalk with access directly from the grassed area adjacent to a newly-constructed beach retaining wall;
-An attached floating pontoon with an aluminium ramp access located adjacent to the boardwalk together with stainless steel ladder access;
-A separate floating pontoon located approximately 25 metres from the jetty boardwalk;
-Viewing platform at the end of the jetty boardwalk;
-Two beach access ramps to the beach and swimming area.
