Collinsville has moved one step closer to gaining RV Friendly status, after Whitsunday Regional Council resolved to sign a Letter of Understanding received from the Campervan and Motorhome Club of Australia (CMCA).
Mayor Jennifer Whitney said that Collinsville’s rich heritage makes the town an ideal destination for tourists.
“With the Collinsville town entry statement in place and the bronze Pit Pony statue set to be unveiled this weekend; RV Friendly status for Collinsville could not have come at a better time,” Mayor Whitney said.
“Once Council has signed and returned the Letter of Understanding to CMCA, we will receive two RV Friendly signs which can be used to better promote Collinsville to the RV and caravanning markets,” she said.
“The number of RV travellers is expected to increase by more than 60 per cent over the next decade, and it’s important that the Whitsunday Region is well positioned to benefit from that market growth.”
As part of the agreement with CMCA, Council has agreed to allow short-term overnight parking for self-contained motorhomes, campervans and caravans at the Collinsville Showground.
