KROOMBIT Park has come a long way in 19 years.

Park owner Carol Sandilands said there had been a lot of changes since they first moved onto the park in 1996.

"When we started, we only had seven rooms and now we have several more and we are able to take a lot more numbers," she said.

This increase in numbers has meant the park has had to expand.

Now, thanks to a $107,410 grant through T-QUAL Grants Program that Kroombit Park has matched dollar-for-dollar, they are able to upgrade their facilities to accommodate the expansion with an eco-friendly waste management system.

This money was used to install a new wastewater treatment plant, fencing, pump stations and irrigation system and to upgrade the pipe work to existing infrastructure and electrical works.

"It was a lot of money," Carol said.

"It would take us a long time to put it in if we didn't get the grant.

"It evolved a lot quicker having the grant and we were really appreciative of the girls from The Right Balance that helped us get it and we are certainly honoured to have Senator John Hogg here to open it."

Carol said the park's old system was preventing any further expansions.

"The old system was not built for the numbers we now have, so we had to upgrade where we could, but expansions had to be put on hold because we were pushing it already."
