Mulwala Water Ski Club CEO Peter Duncan said the ski club is proud to support Tunzafun with a $40,000 donation to go towards safety and improving disability facilities and accessibil­ity including access ramps, safety gates and soft fall mats.

“This will make Tunzafun inclusive and disability-friendly which will permit all in the Yarrawonga and Mulwala community to enjoy,” he said.

“Tunzafun is a great institutio­n for Yarrawonga and Mulwala. Families can come here and stay longer because of Tunzafun. The volunteers really make it worthwhile. It’s a great asset for the two towns and visitors love it too.”

Tunzafun Committee President Helen Purtle said Mulwala Progress Associatio­n and Tunzafun are so extremely grateful for this “outstandin­g donation” to upgrade the mini golf course and thank Mulwala Water Ski Club very much.

“Our mini golf course required a muchneeded upgrade – a real spruce up – so we are going to replace the artificial turf to make the surface safer and more attractive,” she said.

“Mini golf is our biggest drawcard of the park and is so popular with teenagers, children and adults, family tourists and charity events.

“Mulwala and Yarrawonga residents are so lucky to have this fabulous volunteer-run organisati­on and to have wonderful donors like the Mulwala Water Ski Club who see fit to hand over $40,000 to help keep us going over these difficult times.”

Volunteer and committeem­an George Jenkins said it is “just amazing Mulwala Water Ski Club has come to the party”.

“We complement each other with people visiting both venues. We are keen to start on this big project as soon as possible.”

With its wide variety of activities including many types of rides, seating and barbecue aspects, Tunzafun is indeed an excellent attraction for families and to encourage tourism to the area.

A safety and disability upgrade centred around mini golf at Tunzafun’s volunteere­drun amusement park will proceed following a substantia­l cheque of $40,000 from across the road’s Mulwala Water Ski Club.
