Short Term Accommodation

The Shire of Dowerin is committed to ensuring that the community’s wants and needs are recognised and acted upon. In 2012/2013 the Shire of Dowerin completed the Dowerin Strategic Community Plan.

The Shire of Dowerin received over 350 comments and suggestions from the community members, local business and community groups in response to a community consultation process ‘Community Future Surveys’ in 2012.

Through this consultation process the community of Dowerin has outlined that there is a current need to develop accommodation options within Dowerin and it was highlighted that a high quality Caravan Park could be a major tourism asset for the Shire of Dowerin.

At its December 2013 meeting, Council agreed to pursue this project and in 2015 successfully applied for National Stronger Regions funding from Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development.

Based on funding availability, Council decided to deliver Phase One of the project in 2016/17. 

Building is nearing completion and we are taking bookings now for late August 2017 and beyond.

Phase One will offer 3 one-bedroom units, 4 studio units and an RV Friendly caravan park style accommodation suitable for grey nomads, couples and families consisting of 5 powered caravan sites and 11 powered camping sites.  The accommodation park will be complete with communal BBQ area as well as an ablution block containing showers and toilets (including facilities accessible to disabled people).

All aspects of the precinct are focused on high quality comfort - making the Dowerin Short Stay Accommodation precinct the first choice of accommodation in the Central Wheatbelt.
