New cabins at Riverside park a hit with travellers
The new cabins at the Riverside Holiday Park have proven popular with visitors, with an average occupancy rate of over 70 percent during their first six months of use.

The four two-bedroom family cabins and one “access to all” two bedroom cabin specifically designed to cater for guests with mobility challenges were installed in 2017 as part of the second stage of the Riverside Holiday Park redevelopment.

The cabins were co-funded by Hindmarsh Shire Council and the Victorian Government and are proving an important asset to the Council-managed park as well as Dimboola and the broader Hindmarsh region.

The cabins offer alternative accommodation options alongside the park’s spacious powered and non-powered sites and budget cabins. Visitors to the park can also enjoy the new recreation room and camp kitchen.

The cabins project created work and employment opportunities for local contractors during the construction phase and has created ongoing employment positions for 2 cleaning staff.

The new cabins have received excellent feedback from guests:
“Some of the best cabins we have stayed in.”
“Stopped over here and arrived after hours, staff were very helpful and had a brand new 2 bedroom cabin which was spotless and cosy looking out over the creek for a very affordable price. Highly recommended!”
“The staff couldn’t have been better, & the cabins themselves were perfect for us, very clean & able to cater to a group of our size.”

Hindmarsh Shire Council Mayor Cr Ron Ismay said that it has been exciting to watch the redevelopment.

“It has been really exciting watching the redevelopment of the Riverside Holiday Park over the past few years, and the new cabins are an impressive addition.

“We are particularly proud to be able to cater for people dealing with mobility issues with the specially designed cabin. The recreation room and camp kitchen both have all ability access as well.”

Councillor Ismay acknowledges the support of the State Government, Minister Jaala Pulford, and all trades people involved in the project.

“We look forward to continued high occupancy rates.”
