A new cutting edge visitor and information centre in the township of Cohuna is set to wow guests to the town.

 

The recently completed Gateway to Gannawarra Education, Cultural and Heritage Centre is located in the picturesque Garden Park and focuses on the many attractions of the area including the myriad of business and lifestyle aspects of the region.

 

The centre is expected to be a major drawcard for the town and includes toilet facilities, car parking to accommodate 24 vehicles and an outdoor display and promotion area.

 

Inside the centres feature a recycled red gum table, a smorgasbord of tourist information, display units showcasing the artistry of local talents, maps and a television which will feature presentations of the local river, bush and lake attractions.

 

An integrated sound system will also make the centre the perfect place to host community functions.

 

Gannawarra Shire Council Director Infrastructure Planning and Regulatory Services Geoff Rollinson said the centre focuses on presenting the tourism, environmental, business and lifestyle aspects of the region to visitors and residents, with a significant and ongoing flow-on benefit to residents and businesses within the Gannawarra Shire.

 

The centre will be staffed by one full-time officer and community volunteers.

 

“The volunteer roster is under development and planning for activities to train volunteers is well underway,” Mr Rollinson said.

 

Landscaping of the facility isalso underway with planting of indigenous species, laying of turf and mulching almost completed.

 

The official opening of the Gateway to Gannawarra project is expected to be in late November or early December.
