OVER $100,000 in federal government money will go towards a disability-friendly cabin and playground at a Mulwala caravan park.

The $104,561 is part of $236,491 being spent on the entire project at DC on the Lake which was damaged by a tornado in 2013.

Park owner Craig O’Callaghan said the playground, expected to open in July, “will be more for guests” than the general public.

Politicians Greg Aplin and Sussan Ley said the funding, matched by the park owners, would bolster tourism to Mulwala.
