Main Street Revitalisation Strategy Project Updates

Updated 1 July 2021

Amphitheatre Opening

As per the concept plans, a portion of the western wall of the Amphitheatre will be removed to make it accessible and inviting to the Main Street. The tiered seating will be upgraded to synthetic grass, which is a part of Council's effort to reduce our water use. The opening of the wall works are expected to begin in July, and the synthetic turf installation in August.

Electronic Noticeboard

As outlined in Strategy Eleven, an electronic noticeboard will be installed in the Main Street to allow greater flexability to inform the public on public notices, upcoming events, emergency messages, and local initiatives. The electronic noticeboard is expected to be installed by Septmber 2021.

Memorial Garden & War Memorial Upgrade

As outlined in Strategies Five and Thirteen, the War Memorial is being upgraded to allow greater accessibility and reduce water use, and the Sculpture Park adjacent to the Amphitheatre is being converted into a Memorial Garden to showcase the existing smaller memorials, new artwork, new interpretative information, and updated landscaping. These works have already commenced, and Council are working extremely hard to have to works completed before the Back to the Bush Reunion in November 2021.

After the great success of trialing temporary parklets through 2020 and 2021, Council have been working on making parklets a permanent feature of the Main Street. The parklets will be incorporated into the planned pinch points, which aim to bring the two sides of the street closer together and allow for safer pedestrian crossing. The pinch points will not impede on the existing double lane Main Street. The parklets will feature built in booth seating designed and created by a local contractor.
