Flax Mill Caravan Park - Campervan & Motorhome Club of Australia Ltd

The Shire has entered into a Management Agreement with CMCA (Campervan & Motorhome Club of Australia Ltd) to  manage the Boyup Brook Caravan Park.

The CMCA is the largest Recreational Vehicle (RV) club in Australia, with more than 70,000 members. The CMCA currently operate RV “no frills” parks in all Australian states other than WA and promotes these parks through its online website and monthly magazine which is distributed to CMCA members.

The CMCA have their own branding for parks that will be used for their members and the booking site. However, we will continue to use the Boyup Brook Flax Mill Caravan Park name on our own directional signage and marketing materials.

The CMCA will take responsibility for all bookings through an online booking system and have a live in caretaker for the Flax Mill Caravan Park. The Shire will receive 70% of the bookings, with 30% being retained by the CMCA.

Guests have the option to make a booking through the following methods:

 Online booking system - https://rvparks.cmca.net.au/ (non-members have access to this booking system as well)

  • By phone through CMCA head office in Newcastle 02 4978 8788 (8.30am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday EST)
  • Arrive at the park and Custodian (currently Michael) can book you in on site

The benefits to the Shire include free nationwide advertising, introduction of an online booking system and an onsite caretaker for the caravan park.

In 2021, the Shire commenced renovations of the ablutions blocks, installed new reticulation systems, replaced the cladding on the scutching shed and extended and renovated  the caravan park camp kitchen.  New water tanks have been installed and work has begun on the extended/additional bays, and installation of a gravel road.

The Shire President, Councillors and staff wish to thank Gyula and Maria Bogar for their dedication and commitment at the Flax Mill Caravan Park over the last 20 years.
