The project aim is to provide upgraded infrastructure to the community with modern and clean toilets to the main street (Binney Street) and also a Memorial Service Park - in memory of those who served at World War 1 and for locals and visitors to go to rest, reflect and gather informally. The project includes:

  • An all-abilities access toilet facility and adjoining shelter veranda area
  • Service infrastructure to the site, water, sewer, stormwater
  • Solar power units to run the electrical needs of the site within the building and includes solar lights
  • Solar tower lights in the garden area
  • Seats and bins also planned
  • Goulburn Valley Water donated hydration station/drinking fountain
  • Additional street light near toilet area
  • Old toilet block removed and new pavement and carparks planned, including a disabled bay
  • Rotary and members of the community to complete the landscaping and memorial plinths
  • Plinths have been supplied through a grant fund - from State funds of the Victoria Remembers Project (Anzac) - in memor of WW1
  • Council and Rotary to coordinate and financially support the project wherever possible.
