goldA 16-site campground is now open at the picturesque Credo Conservation Reserve in the Goldfields.

 

The former pastoral lease, about 70km north-west of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, is home to new multi-purpose camping sites that can accommodate caravans, camp trailers and tents.

 

It includes tables, barbecue rings, two new toilet blocks, new signs, new access roads and upgrades to the homestead and shearers’ quarters.

 

The $250,000 project, funded by the State Government’s Royalties for Regions program, is part of the $21.05 million Parks for People initiative aimed at encouraging tourism and affordable access to WA’s spectacular natural assets.

 

Attractions in and near Credo Conservation Reserve include salmon-gum woodlands, greenstone hills, birdlife, wildflowers, historic mining towns and the region’s largest freshwater lake.

 

In the 2014-15 financial year, the State Government constructed 271 new campsites in national parks and reserves.

 

The number of visits to national parks and reserves increased to 18.67 million in 2014-15, up from 16.88 million in the previous year.
