• Member for Barker Tony Pasin MP has joined the Tatiara District Council to celebrate the completion of a jointly funded project that has transformed the Bordertown Caravan Park.


The $1.4 million project has seen eight new cabins and landscaping provide substantial economic and community benefit, integral to the future sustainability of the township.


The project received $700,000 from the former Coalition Government in 2020, following strong support from Tony Pasin.


“The former Coalition Government invested $1.15 billion across the country through the Building Better Regions initiative to drive economic growth and build stronger regional communities into the future. Each and every project funded under the program is a testament to the Coalition’s commitment to regional Australia,” Mr Pasin said.


“I was a strong supporter of the Bordertown Caravan Park project because I understand the economic benefits that increased overnight visitor numbers bring to the Tatiara region.”


New cabins, the removal of permanent onsite vans and outdated cabins, separation of caravan/RV area and cabins and improved landscaping to improve overall park appearance and amenities were part of the $1.4 million project.


With the inclusion of two all-abilities cabins, the caravan park now caters for travellers and visitors with limited mobility, with visitor feedback praising the cabins as the best all-abilities access cabins between Adelaide and Melbourne

“I’m incredibly proud of the support provided by the Coalition because it’s projects like this that ensure our productive and vibrant region remains strong, resilient and prosperous in the long term,” Mr Pasin said.


“It’s all part of my work to ensure Bordertown remains a great place to live, work and raise a family,” Mr Pasin said.


Fully occupied, the new cabins can accommodate 34 visitors. Since opening, the cabins have achieved 85 per cent occupancy.
