The public is getting a close-up look at planned designs for upgrades along the Shipwreck Coast.
Parks Victoria is hosting two information sessions – one from 6pm on Thursday, May 17 at the Port Campbell Surf Life Saving Club, and the second from 2pm on Saturday, May 19 at the Port Campbell Arts Space – to seek feedback on designs for two new lookouts and a pedestrian bridge.
Architecture firm Denton Corker Marshall has released designs for lookouts at the Blowhole and the Saddle and a pedestrian bridge over Campbells Creek in Port Campbell.
Parks Victoria chief operating officer Simon Talbot said world-class architects, landscape architects and engineers were chosen to “deliver an amazing concept for an amazing landscape”.
Eastern Maar Aboriginal Corporation chief executive office Jamie Lowe said Eastern Maar people had been closely consulted on the project.
“The Eastern Maar people are excited by this opportunity to assist with the design and implementation of this development at such an iconic landscape, which has been significant to our people for tens of thousands of years,” he said.
The upcoming community consultation sessions will include presentations from Parks Victoria and Denton Corker Marshall and the chance for questions and feedback. A feedback survey on the three projects will be available on Engage Victoria.
The projects are being funded as part of stage one of the Shipwreck Coast Masterplan.
