New Camp Kitchen and Recreation Room
Out with the old and in with the new…the Camp kitchen at Stockton Beach Holiday Park was recently replaced by a new State of the Art Camp Kitchen and Recreation room. The design and concept was created internally and brought to reality by East Coast homes who provided the winning tender and delivered the facility in several large sections trucked down from Currumbin Queensland. The complete installations only took 3 weeks, thus minimising disruptions to Park Patrons.
The kitchen boasts commercial grade stove tops, oven, toaster, fridge, BBQ’s and a flat screen TV. The recreation room features floor to ceiling aerial photography prints and is decked out with pool table, arcade games and amusements, lounges, projector and surround sound audio visual system with 110inch screen for movie nights!
