Spring 2017

Dear Guests,

It’s great to feel a few hints of spring start to show, especially with holidays nearly here.  Days are getting longer and the wild freesias are flowering.  We hope you get a chance to sneak down for a night or two or even more if you are lucky enough over the school break.  You will notice there have been more old vans head for greener pastures and newer replacements moved in.  Welcome to all new Wynndean guests!

Our very talented staff member, Adam from Adam Stan Photography captured these shots of @breatheablueocean from his drone at Barwon Heads.  This artwork is all done by one man before sunrise.  Please click on the link to see more images and some video footage: https://youtu.be/GewXMKTrP2s

 

Roads Update

After starting in The Esplanade, the council have hit a snag with the significant tree overlay and need to get the works through their planning department.  We believe that works won’t continue until early next year now, after the Christmas School holidays.

Electricity

Electricity providers have advised that if it is an extreme summer they will be shedding power which will cause supply interruptions of up to 4-5 hours.  We have continued to work with Powercor and our electrician to look at improving some load and spread issues in the Block 3 section of the Park.  Unfortunately, things have progressed slowly and major works are not envisaged to start before the Christmas holidays.  We will keep you updated.

Rentals

If you would like to rent your van out over the Christmas holidays, please contact the office in the next week and we will send out a rental form.  If you have rented before or expressed an interest throughout the year we will be sending forms out next week.  Don’t hesitate to contact the office for more information.

Registering Guests

Please ensure when you bring down guests you register them at the office, online, by email or phone.  It is a legal requirement and of course there is no charge when down with the Lessee.  If guests are coming down to use your van without the Lessee then they also need to register and pay the site charge.  It is important that the Lessee notifies the office so we know the guests are legit.

Car and bike Safety

Please be mindful of your speed when driving on our shared roads in the Park.  Young children (an old ones!), especially on bikes and scooters etc can be hard to see.  Please keep to the speed limit of 10km/h.  Please ensure helmets are worn at all times when riding bikes and scooters etc and that children are supervised.  There should be no riding after dark and children should be aware of vehicles.

Trees

Please let the office know if you have branches on or around your caravan or annexe which may be causing damage.  As always, please be reminded that no branches should be cut as we are under a vegetation overlay and require a permit to cut trees.  Please see the office if you have any concerns.  You may have noticed that our arborist has been in and around the Park during the winter months.

Hard Rubbish Collections

For customers wanting to dispose of hard rubbish ie couches, bbq’s, could you please inform the office and we will organise to have it picked up from your site.  Please don’t place large items at bin stops.  We try and reuse, recycle and where possible take items in good condition to the local charity organisations.

Gas Bottles

Please see the office if you require a 9kg or 45kg gas bottle.  These are delivered, fitted and tested for $40 (9kg) and $125 (45kg).  For same day service, it is best to advise us by lunch time.
