Lake Hume Foreshore Project successful in the Coalition's Building Better Regions Fund
Friday, 4 August 2017
The Wodonga region will receive a boost following news that the Huon Reserve on Lake Hume Foreshore project has won funding through the Coalition Government’s
Building Better Regions Fund.
Nationals Senator for Victoria, Bridget McKenzie said today the project would receive $125,000 through the Fund, making the project a reality.
"The grant goes towards the $250,000 total cost of the project to construct
essential infrastructure at the Reserve to meet a significant increase in the
number of visitors to the foreshore.
“It will also transform the launching point for Lake Hume aquatic recreation as well as
providing much improved conditions for recreational fishing.
“This is a shot in the arm for Wodonga tourism and it will provide an even better
attraction for Foreshore visitors which continue to attract more and more tourists
to this beautiful area,” Senator McKenzie said.
Minister for Regional Development Fiona Nash said she created the Building Better Regions
Fund to help build strong communities for decades to come.
"I aim to help build the kinds of regional communities our children and grandchildren
either want to stay in or come back to, and projects like this one do exactly
that," Minister Nash said.
