Council, as Crown Land Manager, manages five Macleay Valley Coast Holiday Parks (MVCHP) within the Shire, operated through a management lease with Australian Tourist Park Management (APTM), a subsidiary of NRMA. MVCHP generated over $4,000,000 of revenue in 2022-23, with the Crescent Head Holiday Park contributing approximately 40% of this revenue.

This revenue is paid into Council's Crown Land Reserve, a restricted reserve, that can only be spent on the maintenance and improvement of Council managed Crown Land Reserves across the Shire. This income generating role reduces the need to use general ratepayer funds for this purpose and produces savings for the General Fund.

A vital part of operating MVCHP is to continually focus on how to get the best value from the site and generate additional revenue for Kempsey Shire and support our financial future. This Revised Concept Plan provides an updated vision for the Crescent Head Holiday Park and aims to provide improved, well considered facilities for local residents, Kempsey Shire ratepayers and visitors to the region.

Since adopting the original Crescent Head Concept Plan in 2021, we have been working on more detailed design and investigation, as well as costings and revenue projections on the various projects within the park. The revision provides these additional design details and proposes changes in considerations of these investigations. This includes detail on the cabins and safari tents, proposal for additional (out of sight) cabins and a modern manager’s residence and kiosk.

The revised plans seek to improve our offering and focuses on providing diverse mix of accommodation offering at this renowned and celebrated location, including a mix of one two and three bedroom cabins, with disability accessible cabins, safari tents, as well as over 130 camping sites.
