Richmond Valley Council is seeking expressions of interest from enthusiastic, customer-focused operators to manage the Coraki Riverside Caravan Park and Camping Grounds.

The Riverside Caravan Park and its adjoining facilities on the foreshore of the Richmond River are key features in council's pursuit of the development of tourism opportunities within the local area.

A RVC spokeswoman said a commission-based agreement will be negotiated with the successful applicant and the new management period would be up to two years, with a two-year option.

"The caravan park is an important facility within the Richmond Valley LGA, with the ability to cater for the needs of the tourists visiting this lovely part of the Northern Rivers region," the spokeswoman said.

"It is envisaged the contractor will start management of the park in July if possible."

The park is a short-term tourist facility and has 17 powered sites, three unpowered sites, camping grounds, and an amenities block.

The spokeswoman said the park is governed by the council's policies and procedures, as well as the State Government's best practice management guidelines for those who manage caravan and camping parks on Crown Land.
