Alice Springs and Uluru and environs need to do something …

Comment on High season caravan occupancy rate: Zero. by Monica.

Alice Springs and Uluru and environs need to do something about making cheaper camping for caravans and motorhomes.
The Alice Showgrounds should be open permanently at reasonable rates.
We won’t pay over $10 a night and need no facilities except dump point and water.
What councils need to realise we don’t have the funds to pay $35 a night plus.
If we do all the money goes to a caravan park and we don’t have money to spend on other tourist attractions, cafes or restaurants.
The economy of the world is going to be disastrous for a fair while and those who think tourism is going to rush back are dreaming.
Look at the towns and areas that are doing so well out of supplying free or low cost camping for caravans and motorhomes.
Wake up Alice Springs and cater for those on lower incomes that still spend money and allow them to enjoy your region.
