Campaspe $200K upgrade
THE Victorian Government will spend $200,000 improving visitor facilities and recreation at Campaspe River as part of a new initiative to improve Victoria’s waterways.
Member for Northern Victoria Mark Gepp announced the project would be delivered by North Central Catchment Management Authority in partnership with Campaspe Shire to enhance recreation access for the community.
This includes a new river access platform to support recreational fishing and access for water sports.
“This funding will help improve Campaspe River so it can thrive and be enjoyed as a natural treasure for many years to come,’’ Mr Gepp said.
“It’s about recognising the importance this site is to the people of the Campaspe region and the benefits it provides to the community.”
The project is part of the Labor Government’s $3.2 million Boosting Recreational Water Use Initiative (BRWUI).
The government said planning and development for all projects would be in partnership with recreational users, local community members, Aboriginal Victorians, traditional owners and other key stakeholders, prior to delivery of on-ground works.
