Caravan parks

Caravan parks in the Mackay local government area are governed by council's Subordinate Local Law No. 1.8 (Operation of Caravan Parks) 2011.

How to apply

A permit is required to operate a caravan park in the Mackay Local Government area.

A Caravan Park Approval Form (PDF 124 KB) must be lodged with council with the relevant fee and supporting documentation prior to operation.

In the event an existing caravan park is sold, the permit for that caravan park must be transferred and applicable fees paid.  Council highly recommends prospective purchasers request a Health Requisition Enquiry or Inspection prior to settlement.

Once a caravan park is sold, the new owner and/or approval holder is responsible for all outstanding requisitions and applicable licensing fees.

For further information regarding approval and operation of a caravan park, contact council's Health and Regulatory Services team on 1300 MACKAY (622 529) or email
