Wunghnu Becomes RV Friendly

Moira Shire is a Recreational Vehicle (RV) friendly shire and is actively seeking to encourage greater visitation and economic impact from the self-contained RV market. The self-contained RV market represents a growing segment of tourists travelling to and through the Moira Shire, not detracting from the regular caravan and camping visitors.

February’s Council Meeting saw the endorsement of the Wunghnu Recreation Reserve as a designated, 48-hour camping area for self-contained RVs.

Moira Shire Council’s Chair Administrator John Tanner AM said that the addition of the Wunghnu Recreation Reserve to Council’s list of RV friendly sites will be beneficial to locals and tourists alike.

“With statistics showing that the average self-contained RV tourist travels approximately 163 days of the year, it is important to consider this market in Moira Shire’s tourism offering,” said Chair Administrator Tanner AM.

“We welcome visitors to our shire – there are an abundance of local businesses to support and beautiful, natural landscapes to enjoy. The addition of the Wunghnu Recreation Reserve as a designated camping area for self-contained RVs will encourage more visitors to experience what the Moira Shire has to offer. It also presents an easily accessible stop over for self-contained RVers travelling north or south on the Goulburn Valley Highway.”

“This is a great achievement for the Wunghnu community, with RV Friendly status for their town listed as a priority in the Wunghnu & District Community Plan. I commend the Wunghnu community for continuing to advocate for this.”

The Wunghnu Recreation Reserve site joins the Lion’s Parks in Tungamah and Numurkah as designated, 48-hour camping areas for self-contained RVs – the Tungamah and Numurkah sites being re-confirmed after the adoption of the new Community Amenity Local Law in late 2023.
