Towong Shire

Upgrades to Existing Facilities

Towong Shire Council is committed to working with the community to identify priority facilities and infrastructure that warrant investment. Wherever possible, we try to maximise our own Council resources by seeking a contribution from the State and/or Federal Government. The following projects are a snapshot of where efforts are currently being directed.

Walwa Streetscape

Walwa's streetscape will be upgraded during the first half of 2018; part of Council's 4-year town beautification and improvements program.

Lakelands Caravan Park Transformation

Patrons of Lakelands Caravan Park are poised to benefit from a major upgrade of facilities. These comprise a new park entry, new all-access amenities block, new camp kitchen, new barbecue area and a new reception and kiosk. The major investment, totalling almost $2 million, will add beauty, modern convenience and increased safety for the many patrons who enjoy the park’s prime holiday location on the banks of Lake Hume.

Fixing Country Roads - Bethanga and Eskdale

Towong Shire Council has secured over $1.16 million in funding for much needed road upgrades as part of the State Government’s Fixing Country Roads Program. This grant was the largest awarded to any Council as part of this program, and will be boosted by $333,150 of ratepayer funds for upgrades. The funding will deliver substantial improvements to intersections, parking, road surfaces and pedestrian safety in Bethanga and Eskdale, with projects scheduled to be delivered during the first half of 2019.
