New owners move in

LAKE Leslie Tourist Park has new owners and managers and they have big plans for the popular camping ground.

Adam Bennett and his wife Caroline took on the job almost two weeks ago, hoping to take a step back from full-time work.

"We are semi-retired," Mr Bennett (pictured) said.

"We've been working for the man all our lives and have been looking to make a change."

The couple moved from Central Queensland.

Mr Bennett said the Lake Leslie Tourist Park was exactly what they were looking for.

"On the way to see the place we drove through Warwick and it is beautiful with its old-style buildings," he said.

"It wasn't too busy or hectic and we knew it was the place for us."

Mr Bennett said they had plans to build a kiosk, a shop and a cafe.

He is also looking to start a regular bonfire night.

"We are already getting bookings for Christmas and we might even get Santa along for a special visit," he said.
