Minister for Regional Development, Jaala Pulford, visited Koondrook to inspect the redevelopment project.

 

“Koondrook is a beautiful part of our state and the redeveloped wharf will bring more people to the region to enjoy it – that’s a win for local businesses and tourism operators,” Pulford said.

 

The upgraded riverfront is expected to attract an additional 4,000 day visitors and 2,800 night visitors every year, and will draw recreational and tourism related projects to the area.

 

The project was designed to complement the pristine natural setting on the banks of the Murray River.  The wharf has been constructed with locally-sourced river red gum timber and includes deck access to frame key river views and support events and activities, casual access to the Murray River foreshore to support a range of recreational activities and mooring facilities to support recreational and commercial activities including paddle steamer access.

 

The visitor economy is a key driver for regional Victoria’s prosperity, with the sector contributing $11.5 billion to the regional economy and generating 114,400 jobs annually.
