Opening of six signs in Mareeba
THE Meeting of Waters will officially be opened next week providing information to tourist and visitors Mareeba.
The information shelter is located at Rotary Park, Mareeba and was constructed by the Barron Catchment Care organisation, with support from the Mareeba Shire Council and Rise. The shelter now contains six informative signs that outline the major importance that the Barron River and Granite Creek has played throughout history, to the people of the Mareeba. The six signs include historical facts and stories relating to indigenous, pioneering and modern times. Barron Catchment Care vice chair Geoff Dickinson said he was truly grateful of the support of the Mareeba community that was for the project. “I have worked with some amazing people from the Mareeba Historical Society, Muluridji Tribal Aboriginal Corporation and Mareeba Heritage Centre who have such a depth of knowledge and love of their local community” he said. The opening ceremony will be held at Rotary Park, Byrnes Street, Mareeba at 3:30pm on Wednesday September 20. Further information is available from Barron Catchment Care on phone 40 95 7109.
