In a win for people along the Murray and tourists who continue to flock to the region, the Koondrook Wharf Redevelopment was opened on Nov 14th by Parliamentary Secretary for Regional Victoria, Danielle Green.
“This is all about enhancing the visitor experience by making the most of everything that the iconic Murray River has to offer. It’s a win for locals and tourists alike,” Green said.
The $2 million project has been supported with $500,000 from the Victorian Government under the Murray-Darling Basin Regional Economic Diversification Program with additional investment provided by Gannawarra Shire Council and the Federal Government.
With improved infrastructure and a better visitor experience, the upgraded riverfront has secured Koondrook’s place as a popular tourism destination, and will see an additional 4,000 day visitors and 2,800 night visitors every year.
It has capitalised on the area’s natural setting to drive visitation, attract private sector investment and boost the local economy.
It will complement the spectacular natural setting along the riverfront.
The visitor economy is a key driver for regional Victoria with the sector contributing $11.5 billion to the regional economy, generating around 114,000 jobs annually.
