Harden Murrumburrah’s Murrimboola Creek will be beautified as part of the Murrumburrah Masterplan after the project received $1,836,446 in funding from Round 4 of the Federal Government’s Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF).
Beautification will include the installation of fish ladders to enable the water to hold at a higher level and walking paths to link the precinct together.
Hilltops Mayor Brian Ingram said, “This is fantastic news for Hilltops and especially the Harden-Murrumburrah community. This funding will unlock the Murrimboola Creek precinct as a key recreation corridor for the community and major attraction for visitors to the area. I thank the Federal Government for their support of this project.”
Deputy Prime Minister and Member for Riverina Michael McCormack said the Murrimboola Creek project would deliver much-needed economic growth and local jobs for the local community. “This funding through the latest round of the Building Better Regions Program will go towards revitalising the Murrimboola Creek Precinct,” Mr McCormack said.
“I am proud to be able to deliver $1,836,446 to the Harden-Murrumburrah community for this worthwhile project. The timing of this project could not be more critical as the region looks to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and attract tourists back to our beautiful part of the world.”
