Further work will take place this year to expand camping facilities at Lucky Bay, east of Esperance, including eight to 10 premium campsites with their own deck or verandah, their own ablutions and camp kitchen.
The State Government has allocated an extra $2.95 million towards the Lucky Bay projects this year through the Royalties for Regions-supported Goldfields Esperance Revitalisation Fund.
The total investment in the Lucky Bay campground stage two work is $3.9 million, including $950,000 from the Department of Parks and Wildlife.
“Lucky Bay, in Cape Le Grand National Park, is one of the most beautiful areas in WA and this is a significant boost to tourism in this region,” Premier and Tourism Minister Colin Barnett said.
The area’s recently opened $3.1 million stage one works involved 62 camp sites on two camping loops overlooking the bay’s spectacular white sands, sealed roads, new paths for beach access, a bore and water supply tanks, larger day use areas, two new barbecue shelters and a toilet.
The stage one redevelopment was made possible by the State Government’s Royalties for Regions investment in the four-year $21.05 million Parks for People initiative, as part of the Caravan and Camping Action Plan 2013-2018.
