Gilgandra Shire Council (GSC) is offering 10 overnight parking spaces to Caravans, RVs and self-contained vans under a trial period.
The overnight parking areas have a maximum stay limit of 48 hours and require users to book.
Guests must meet the definition of fully self-contained to utilise these areas. To be considered fully self-contained, vehicles must be fitted with on-board facilities such as toilets and sinks, and carry a supply of fresh water and retain all grey and black waste water. These on-board facilities cannot be a separate item; they must be manufactured as part of the vehicle and plumbed in. If a vehicle does not meet these criteria, guests will need to use established caravan parks or motels.
Please note, camping in tents or sleeping in cars is not permitted at this overnight parking area.
