$2.127 million for the redevelopment of Tocumwal’s Foreshore
More than $11 million in funding has been announced to create new tourism precincts along the Murray River from Albury to Tocumwal.
Today the Member for Albury Greg Aplin joined the mayors from Albury, Berrigan and Federation Councils at Corowa to announce a new tourism corridor, named the ‘Murray River Regional Experiences’.
The corridor will connect three major projects – the Albury Riverside Precinct, Parks and Wetlands Redevelopment, the Tocumwal Foreshore Activation and Economic Revitalisation project, and the Corowa-Mulwala trail and Foreshore Project – creating the ultimate river tourism experience.
In response to the news our Mayor Cr. Matthew Hannan, said: “Today’s joint announcement with the NSW Government will see a major upgrade of the Tocumwal foreshore reconnecting the river to the town and giving tourists more reasons to visit Tocumwal”.
"We will use this grant to construct a Splash Park. Also, included in the project is the addition of a second level to the current Information Centre creating a new waterfront dining experience strengthening the town's connection to the River."
Also funded by this announcement are associated streetscapes works with the Tocumwal element of the Murray River Regional Experiences Project valued at $3.254 million. Council and community contributions will fund the balance and are part of the Council's and our communities' ongoing commitment to the development and implementation of Landscape Master Plans in each town.
