Since the 1970’s, the hidden oasis of Mudjimba Beach Holiday Park has welcomed generations of travelers longing for caravan and camping holidays.

Soon, the serene park, which lies directly across from the stunning Mudjimba Beach, will offer increased comfort to visitors.

Sunshine Coast Council Division 8 Councilman Jason O’Pray said work had begun on a modern, sustainable and accessible block of amenities.

“This home away from home is one of our area’s most peaceful vacation spots, which is why the community has invested $1.6 million in the amenities to ensure they remain contemporary and attractive for all of our valued guests,” said Cr O’Pray.

“First work began in March to prepare the foundations for the new building’s amenities and showers for all campers, including those living with a disability, and a laundry room for washing and drying.

“Local contractor Murphy Builders has been contracted to construct the new building, which will also feature solar power generation, battery storage and rainwater harvesting for toilet flushing.

“The existing service building will remain open to campers while the new facility will be built on the south side of the existing block.

“Once the coastal-style building is ready for guests, the existing service building will be demolished and removed from the site to make way for open green spaces.”

While campers love to enjoy the sun and salty air, Council has selected materials, fittings and fixtures to withstand the coastal environment, achieve long life and reduce maintenance costs.

Mudjimba Beach Holiday Park Manager Nicole Filippini said the new upgrade has been well received.

“This upgrade meets the demand of the ever-growing number of guests exploring this wonderful part of the Sunshine Coast,” said Ms. Filippini

“Each site is private and peaceful away from the busy crowds and is one of two community owned dog friendly family holiday parks on the Sunshine Coast – the other in Coolum which is also undergoing a very similar amenity upgrade.

“Mudjimba Beach Holiday Park now offers guests 109 fully serviced slab pitches, 64 fully powered grass pitches and 10 non-powered grass pitches, also thanks to an upgrade in 2021.

“These upgrades will go a long way towards improving the park, which is sure to delight campers around August.”

Council operates six holiday parks in the Sunshine Coast area – Dicky Beach, Mooloolaba, Maroochydore, Cotton Tree, Coolum and Mudjimba. Visit the Sunshine Coast Holiday Parks website for information on each of these parks.
