Improvements at Jabour Park campground

By Jenny Porter |

Every Wednesday members of the Grafton Vintage Motor Vehicle Club (GVMVC) work to maintain the campground at Jabour Park, however, lately they have been busier than usual with the installation of a dump point and associated signage.

Previously campers and caravanners have had access to showers and toilets. Now, thanks to grant from the Campervan & Motorhome Club of Australia, in conjunction with the state government, they will also have the convenience of an easily accessible dump point.

The GCMVC have undertaken the work to install the dump point facility which will improve the amenities at this popular camping spot in South Grafton. It was a case of “all hands on deck” last week when the project was started. It is scheduled to be completed, with the dump point fully operational, by late June.

Club president Doug Clarke said that the installation of the dump point will be a great improvement to the current camping facilities. “Our campground is in a beautiful location and attracts visitors from all over Australia and we are delighted that we can now attract even more”, he said. “It’s great for visitors to Grafton and campers at our annual Grafton Motorfest in August will also appreciate the improved facilities”.

As well as the regular Wednesday mowing, maintenance and improvements at the club grounds, GVMVC members also enjoy a varied social program. Contact Doug Clark on 0427 665 200 for more information about vintage cars and the campground at Jabour Park.
