Quinns Rocks Caravan Park

Survey on a potential new holiday park now closed

Thank you to everyone who participated in the survey exploring a potential new holiday park at the Quinns Rocks Caravan Park site.

More than 1,000 residents, ratepayers, stakeholders, businesses, industry groups and potential visitors - from across the City and Perth metropolitan area - participated in the survey, which closed on Friday, 14 February 2020.

The City is now evaluating the results, which will assist Stage 2 of the business case being carried out by the City’s consultant, Pracsys.  The business case will help Council consider the potential alternatives for the site.

The business case is now expected to be completed in the coming months, at which time it is intended that the findings will be presented to Council.

Project background

The idea of creating a prime tourism location at the site was developed through the City’s draft Economic Development Strategy, which was advertised for public comment in early 2016.

In August 2017 the City began examining the feasibility of redeveloping the portion of land where the caravan site previously existed.

This study includes developing a business case to explore options for a holiday park with a mix of public amenities and facilities for the local community and visitors.

The City has recently engaged with potential industry operators and the broader community to inform the next phase of the business case.

See attached flyer, which features the site map and background details on the study.

I attended the workshop last night (November 1st) at the Quinns Mindarie Community Centre. It was my observation that a lot of people (not all) who attended either did not understand the process which was asked to be followed, or didn’t want to understand it. Additionally, a number of people gave the impression that there was to be a vote of some kind. I assume that they hadn’t read the information sheets available on the website beforehand, which made it clear as to what the night was about. It was part of an assessment process. Some people were voicing an opinion as if a whole new section of bush was to be cleared and a caravan park put on it. As noted on the website the caravan park was established in 1946 therefore the footprint is already there. 72 years ago, the park was established, if we say it has been closed for 4 years then this means it had been a caravan park for 68 years. Some of the voiced concerns regarding parking, traffic and vandalism beggars believe. The area had coped and had 68 years’ experience to go on. The concern over parking is another point of note. Anyone who knows or cares to know, understands that all parking by park users is within the park itself. There may be a small area outside of this for park visitors but that’s debatable. It was also voiced that most people at the meeting were in favour of leaving it bushland. As we did not get to the end of the process (due to people interjecting and making it hard for the speaker Daniel Marsh to complete this), then have an open discussion. We don’t know how many wanted the park rebuilt as a caravan park. The old park wanted bulldozing, and it was. Building a new park within the existing footprint seems logical to me. I am sure safeguards can be put in place to stop encroachment of additional bushland to accommodate environmental concerns. Full marks to Mayor Tracey Roberts for stepping in to stop the meeting turning into a bun fight. Having worked within Government for a good number of years before retiring (low level). I had nightmares last night as it was good to be out of it. I felt sorry for Daniel in the end, he did his best but never mind, onwards and upwards.

As a couple we have lived in Mindarie for 22 years (since 1996). We have always enjoyed walks to the beach, marina and along the coastal path to Quinn's. We did use the old caravan park on a number of occasions to take our granddaughter away, as well as just to get out of our own environment. This was good as we didn’t have to drive for hours on end. Our best memories of caravanning are waking up with a view of Quinns beach with a surf carnival event underway. The site had been a caravan park since 1946 so it’s not as if new bush is being cleared for this is it. The benefits for the area and the City on it being developed into another caravan park has to far outweigh any negatives. Development is OK as long as it is in the right context. Sorrento Quay would not have happened if the greenies had been listened to.

We live on Quinns Road and have a beautiful view over the area adjacent to the caravan park. This is one of the reasons why we have chosen to built at this location. There are not many places left where you have a large green area so close to the beach. We have lived here for 6 years now and have seen so many caravans being turned around as the caravan park is no longer there. We would like to see the area being redeveloped into a modern caravan park with all the amenities for caravans and tents only. There should not be any permanent structures other than the admin and ablution facilities.The only other caravan park that is so close to the beach is at Seabird and Guildford. I would guarantee that this can become the most attractive caravan park this close to Perth, similar to the caravan park at Jurien Bay and Cervantes.
