Flood-hit van park returning to 'former glory'

Thursday November 15, 2012 - 09:50 EDT

The Campaspe Shire says owners and residents at a northern Victorian caravan park damaged by floods are looking forward to seeing repairs completed.

The Rochester Caravan Park was flooded several times during late 2010 and early last year, and a million dollars has been spent repairing the site.

The shire's Keith Oberin says the new amenities block arrived last week.

"It's starting to look fantastic and we hope that not only the visitors and the residents of the park but also the general Rochester community can see some pride in the park now that we're bringing it back to its former glory," he said.
