Local landmark returned to former glory

Stage 2 includes a destination play space, mountain bike trail and picnic and market spaces, with preliminary civil works now underway. “We anticipate so many uses for this landmark building, as a community, events, heritage and retail space as well as a landing place for visitors to the precinct.” Ms Tappert described the restoration project as particularly unique. It makes best use of what was an almost derelict building to support tourism and the local economy.” The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure has invested over $1.1 million to the project and Council was also successful in securing a $20,000 grant from Heritage South Australia to support the restoration of the station roof.
