Bunyip ready to barbecue
The Bunyip Barbecue Rotunda/Shelter Shed was officially opened to the public on Australia Day with a free sausage sizzle.
Constructed by the Bunyip Community Market, the shelter shed is located near the Fire Brigade running track at the Bunyip Recreation Reserve.
The twin plate barbecue is coin operated, needing $1 per hotplate for about 25 minutes of cooking.
Each hotplate is quite large and can cater for many people. However for large gatherings, both barbecues can be operated simultaneously.
On the side of the barbecue is a double power point to plug in an urn or any other cut appliance.
Surrounding the Rotunda is a large expanse of short grass which will allow children to play in safety. Toilet facilities are located nearby. There are still some additions to be made such as a commercial table and rubbish bins.
