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.

Park is owned by state gvt, Kui are just an online/marketing type organisation who promote small parks..  I stayed there for about 7-8 weeks recently when Shaun was still there, state gvt treated him pretty badly. 7 day a week job managing the park and you get paid nothing, just accommodation..  Anyway, long story short, Shaun turned the park around and basically "made" the place over 3 years. Govt didn't give a damn and refused to give an inch so he left..  If you keep an eye out, you'll probably see him around Stannifer still though...   ;)

I am there now.  Park is being kept open by a few local volunteers until Council in Tamworth can find new caretakers.  Apparently, there is hope on the horizon.

Hi all,
We are the new caretakers of Tingha Gems Caravan Park, having taken over from Shaun, who has recently left the park, but still lives in the local area. We thought we'd better let everyone know that the Tingha Gems Caravan Park is open, and welcoming all guests. We look forward to having small or large fossicking groups come to the park, and will do our best to cater to your needs. Our phone number is (02) 6723 3234, or mobile 0476 681 467. We both grew up in Tingha, and know the area well, as well as having many contacts within the area. We look forward to hearing from you.  ;D
