Camping area near Agnes to be closed for maintenance
WORKMAN'S Beach Camping Ground near Agnes Water will be closed from October 19-30 to enable Gladstone Regional Council to conduct scheduled maintenance.
Gladstone Region Mayor Gail Sellers said the annual routine maintenance would enable the grounds to be restored to pristine condition for continued use in the future.
"These grounds are very popular as they offer longer-term camping, so good management practices ensure they are available for recreational visitors year-round and in the long-term," Councillor Sellers said.
Cr Sellers said existing campers would be notified by staff of the upcoming closure and temporary signage was planned for the site.
"There are alternative camping sites in and around the Discovery Coast, so I encourage campers to consider these and make arrangements to relocate before 10am on October 19," she said.
"I thank everyone in advance of these works as I realise it is an inconvenience, but ask for consideration as this maintenance is vital to the long-term use of the grounds."
