For those interested,

The Caravan Park at Agnes Water Beach will be reopened by Xmas(hopefully)
The old Caravan Park was sold to developers for the development of multi million dollar units a few years back. That has fallen through and a local developer has bought it and work has started on the caravan sites and bungalos.
The crane ( our large wind direction monitor), an eyesore, has been removed.It had been there for a few years.
Local businesses said they lost a lot of trade when the park closed, so hopefully that will return.

Cheers
Dianne

Agnes Waters is north of Bundaberg and on the coast east of Miriam Vale.

A nice part of the world.

Hi All,

We were in Agnes Water a couple of weeks ago, and noted the resuscitation of the beachside cara park (dormant, with said crane when we were there a couple of years ago).

But there is another alternative for BOGgers, at Workmans Beach, at the southern end of Agnes Water, turnoff about 200 mtrs past the Police Station. A shire-run 'low impact camping area', it costs $5.50pp/night. For that you get a sandy campsite on a forested dune (light shade, we ran the genny for an hour or so neach day to top up the batteries) with walking track down to a glorious beach.There are composting toilets, a tap (boil water) an outdoor shower, and free gas barbecues, plus a regular garbage collection. A ranger comes around each morning (very early, to catch the young whizzbangers before they take off) , and if you stay a week, you get the 7th night free. We loved it, stayed there a week. Only alternative was 1770 cara park at $35/night. It's also lovely, we've stayed there before, right on the beach, but was very crowded due to school hols.

We also struck it lucky with the local markets (about 6 per year, I think) and bought heaps of good fresh local produce for a song.

Cheers, Deb
Stephen & Deborah
