The $2.5 million project, at the 1896 Jarrahdene mill site in Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, is expected to be complete in mid-2017.
The Department of Parks and Wildlife will construct 45 individual campsites and two group camping areas in the Boranup jarrah, marri and peppermint forest setting (pictured).
It is expected to operate through a community partnership model, in which Parks and Wildlife contracts a private or community sector partner organisation to manage the site.
The Jarrahdene project is part of the State Government’s $40.7 million WA Caravan and Camping Action Plan 2013-2018, made possible by Royalties for Regions, which is providing new and upgraded caravan and camping infrastructure and services throughout the State.
The initiative has so far provided 340 new camping sites in WA’s national parks, with at least 450 to be built.
