New Owners!

BY Leslyn Auchterlonie


Long term North Queensland residents Leslyn and Patrick (Paddy) Auchterlonie recently purchased Cooktown Caravan Park and are keen to improve the existing infrastructure and build upon the parks excellent reputation. Les and Paddy have lived and worked in the region for most of their lives and have a close affinity and love for the Tropics. They are keen to share this knowledge with visitors and locals alike. Paddy is a keen fisherman and hopes to promote the outstanding fishing opportunities available in the Cooktown area. Future plans include :

  • a new camp kitchen
  • cabins
  • ground improvements
  • central fire pit
