Fun for Everyone at The Lake Somerset Family Festival

By on November 24, 2011

More than 2600 happy campers and visitors packed into Lake Somerset Holiday Park on Saturday to enjoy the FREE family festival

Park lessees Australian Tourist Park Management (ATPM) threw the park doors open, hosting a massive family fun day to celebrate the recent improvements.

Managing Director Steve Billett said the park was a place for everyone to come together and enjoy quality time with family and friends.

“Lake Somerset Holiday Park has always been known as a watersports playground, a place for boaties and fishermen,” he said

“But the truth is we have so much to offer on dry land as well, and we continually strive to provide memorable experiences for everyone.”

“SEQWater, Somerset Council, the local community and of course our guests have been very supportive of our efforts at the park and we wanted to share the celebrations with them.”

And they sure did celebrate! More than 2600 people passed through the gates to play in the baby animal farm, have their faces painted, enjoy the charity food stalls or have a go on the jumping castle.

The major draw cards were the night-time movie Yogi Bear and the fireworks spectacular.

A great raffle raised money for the Kilcoy Hospital Auxiliary to support the vital work they do in the local community. Prizes were generously donated by local businesses.

Mr Billett said the new park features were well received on the day.

“We have four new safari tents with lake views, an 18-hole mini-golf course and a new camp kitchen,” he said.

The safari tents are permanent, furnished tents that sit on the banks of Somerset Dam. They are ideal for those who enjoy the camping experience but don’t have the time or energy to deal with a traditional tent.
