Visitors to Angusvale, in the joint managed Mitchell River National Park, will soon have more opportunities to connect with nature with upgrades to the much-loved camping area which began in November.
The works, undertaken by the GLaWAC civil crew in partnership with Cranes Asphalting and Solomon & Sons Earthmoving, will improve bush camping opportunities and facilities for visitors while protecting the cultural and environmental values throughout the campground.
The first stage of construction will see upgrades to the road network within the site, enabling easier access for campers, hikers and paddlers to experience this special place.
A new pedestrian path and launch steps will provide easy access for day visitors and campers to swim and kayak in the Mitchell River. Car parking will be provided only a short walking distance away.
During the construction phase, the site will be closed to general park users, with the area safely zoned off and signposted throughout the works. Joint Management partners, Parks Victoria, have made arrangements to accommodate school groups with existing bookings.
Work to upgrade the area is being undertaken by the GLaWAC Business Enterprise civil crew, with construction expected to be complete by March 2024.
This project is funded by the Victorian Government as part of a $2M program for upgrades to East Gippsland Campgrounds.
