Tingha Gems Caravan park closed untill further notice
« on: October 04, 2017, 11:04:47 AM »
All Booked and ready to head out found out on face book park closed until further notice.
No call to say closed and sorry your booking is no longer available.
Contacted KUI and they apologised they were informed on Friday new managers did not show up so Crown Lands closed park until further notice.
Have found a camp at Inverell and will head there instead.  http://aussielapidaryforum.com/forum/Smileys/classic/huh.gif

Wow. :o.. I would say 'Something' really Bad has happened to The Owners. :(... Shame you weren't informed, but Be patient and I will ask around 'What' has happened... May take a few days but I will let you know... Hope 'Things' are ok with them... :(
 
     Can I ask who is KUI???

I think KUI is the group that the Tingha caravan park is associated with.

Kui Parks is a group that the park belonged to.

And they replied to me at 9.30 pm last night which was good and offered an alternative just glad we didn't drive the five hours and find it closed.

Dont know anything about this.


Heard on the grapevine that Shane (??) the caretaker had left - possibly unwillingly or after disagreement with management which is a pity because people seemed to like him and appreciate his interest in fossicking.


If Kui have sacked him and could not even get their act together to have new managers in place efficiently, then that does not seem to be a good thing.


But really dont know any facts about this.


Cheers
Leah

KUI are not responsible for park management Crown Lands have temporary closed the park I guess until new managers are found

Heard that the park is open again, but the bookings book has disappeared.  Might be a good idea to check any booking that is pending.
