Lake Keepit Open Day Wows

October 20, 2017 Whats On No Comments Email Email

The lure of Lake Keepit’s annual ‘Get to Know Keepit’ Open Day and the Department of Primary Industries NSWGone Fishing Day last Sunday saw around 500 visitors flock to the popular holiday destination for some sun, fun and food.

Inland Waters Holiday Parks (IWHP) Lake Keepit Manager Paul Irwin said the usual $11.00 day-entry fee to the park was waived for the day which saw significant savings for the surrounding community.

“We love sharing our destination with others so it was great to see families out and about enjoying the park, live entertainment, jumping castle, face painting, yabbie races and all the fantastic activities surrounding clubs and organisations had on offer,” Paul said.

“We also set up a ‘petting area’ for children to enjoy our cheeky young calves, ‘Moo Moo’ (five months) and ‘Gracie’ (three months) with gold coin donations going to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.”

‘Get to Know Keepit’ Open Day was made a success by the following organisations:

  • Lake Keepit Soaring Club and flight simulator
  • Lake Keepit Sailing Club with sausage sizzles, sail boat display, kayaks and aquatic trash and treasure sale
  • Lake Keepit Family Fishing Club and The Pub Angling Club, Tamworth
  • Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries and Narrabri Fish Farm
  • NSW Rural Fire Brigade who educated the public on fire safety and re-enacted house fires with an inflatable house and smoke
  • John Keating Motors which set up caravan and luxury accommodation displays
  • Wildlife Information Rescue & Education Service (WIRES), Central Northern District
  • Carolyne Morris Face Painting
  • Cathy’s Jumping Castles, Gunnedah
  • Axiom Entertainment, Chris White and Matt O’Leary
  • Neil Farr from Liberty Sky

NSWCHPT CEO Steve Edmonds said Lake Keepit was a special destination that really showcased the beauty and wildlife of regional NSW in a holiday setting.
