Welcome to Edithburgh

AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE EDITHBURGH CARAVAN PARK.

COVID-19 Virus Update

AN IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM EDITHBURGH CARAVAN PARK 

In response to the Prime Minister’s announcement on 24 March 2020 and the restrictions around non-essential domestic travel, the Edithburgh Caravan Park has had to make some extremely difficult decisions with regard to the provision of services throughout this challenging period.

As per the Government guidelines – ‘essential travel’ is described as per the following;

  • necessary activities for work purposes,
  • essential accommodation while stopping at one location during a current road trip,
  • travel on compassionate grounds, and
  • travel required to return to your place of residence.

For guests who are needing to stay with us over the coming weeks and months, we will be supporting and encouraging self-distancing and hygiene measures, so you and your travelling companion/s remain safe and protect the safety of others.

As a result, our park will be taking the following measures;

  • The Edithburgh Caravan Park will remain open to provide an ‘essential’ service to those in need. Our priority is to ensure the health and safety of our staff, park guests and the wider community, while at the same time committing to the needs of those that require our ‘essential’ services.
  • All bookings and payment will be taken over the phone.
  • We will pre-arrange a self-check in for you.
  • All ‘essential travel’ vehicles must be self-contained with own cooking, toilet and shower facilities.
  • Camper trailers, roof-top tents, tents and the like will not be permitted and guests will be referred to a self-contained cabin.
  • Camp Kitchens will be closing for the foreseeable future, however, all outdoor BBQs will remain open.
  • All that have upcoming bookings will be contacted via email to advise of the options going forward.
  • Park Managers will continue to update patrons via social pages and email as the situation evolves.

For those of you who have a non-essential booking within the next 60 days, please contact the park directly to discuss your options.

For any further queries with respect to this statement, please refer to the Prime Minister’s announcement – Update on coronavirus measures   https://www.pm.gov.au/media/update-coronavirus-measures-24-March-2020

Edithburgh Caravan Park.

Edithburgh is a delightful town and popular holiday destination just 233 kilometers from Adelaide on the Yorke Peninsula. Great swimming beaches, a tidal swimming pool with a shallow area and a growing reputation for the range and high standard of food available in local restaurants ensure Edithburgh is the perfect place to take the family for a holiday. The sandy beaches are perfect for swimming, scuba diving, snorkelling and sail boarding and the foreshore is the perfect spot for a picnic, barbeque or leisurely walk.

This lovely town is an excellent location for keen fishermen, with a variety of fish including Mullet, King George whiting and larger fish such as Snapper being found in its waters. Cast a line from the jetty, from beaches like Sultana Point Beach, or take to the water from the all-weather boat ramp.

Edithburgh and Troubridge Island are the resting place for a number of shipwrecks, including the ‘Clan Ranald’ which ensures divers will find as many reasons as families and fishermen to visit this picturesque and fascinating area.

Wattle Point Wind Farm is only a short drive from Edithburgh and a viewing area allows visitors to get up-close to these amazing 68m high structures.

Book your accommodation now ready for this year’s ‘Day at the Burgh’.  FRIDAY 13 NOVEMBER 2020 THROUGH TO SUNDAY 15 NOVEMBER 2020.  See more details at the Day at the Burgh page on this website.

More details to come as they emerge, but start planning now for another fabulous Day at the Burgh weekend!
