THE PEEL Region’s historic town of Jarrahdale, only 50 minutes south of Perth, is now an RV Friendly Town.
To qualify for the Campervan and Motorhome Club of Australia’s program, towns must meet the needs of RV travellers and satisfy stringent criteria, including access to a general shopping area, provision of low cost overnight parking, and access to potable water and a free dump point
CMCA also considers the general attitude of the local council and community, so as to truly identify the friendliest areas in Australia.
Therefore, travellers can enter any RV Friendly Town™ with the knowledge they will be welcomed and adequately provided for.
Jarrahdale provides a short stay area for fully self-contained RV’s. Travellers can leisurely experience the historic town as a tourist destination and all that it offers.
CMCA director Ken Kipping said the results of the RV Friendly Town™ program continued to be promising.
“It is great to see an increasing number of towns qualifying as RV Friendly,” he said.
“The designation of RV Friendly Towns continues to encourage all RV travellers to stop, shop and enjoy what all the various towns in Western Australia have to offer.
“It is now up to these communities to make the tourists welcome. If you see them around the town, say hello and tell them about some of the great things to see in the Shire.”
