Creating a gateway to the Macquarie Marshes
by Bill Riversmart, posted 2013-05-23

Idea Description:

Our not-for-profit organisation, with the support of the local Council, is about to start developing a community and visitor information centre in an old school house building beside the Tiger Bay Wetland in Warren.  This centre will offer multiple services to the community such as education and training, information about the Macquarie River Trails initiative and the amazing Macquarie Marshes, and a place from which to organise our community events, such as the Orana Mutual sponsored Macquarie River Fishing Classic held in December each year.

Community Benefits:

This facility will provide a community hub for information and training about river sustainability and regional tourism as well as an entry point to the iconic Macquarie Marshes.  It's hoped the centre will bring more visitors to the town and region and through this benefit local businesses and job seekers.
