Roadhouse to Recovery Projects Ready to Go
Nine projects are now complete as part of the highly-popular $4 million Roadhouse to Recovery Grant initiative.
More than $2.26 million has been paid out in funding, with many more projects nearing their final stages of construction and upgrades.
“This grant has helped us carry out our biggest upgrades to date,” said Corroboree Park Tavern owner Peter Shappert.
“We have installed three new cabins, new lighting and we’ll also be putting in new powered sites for campers. We’re looking forward to welcoming guests into our new cabins this weekend, with the place booked out for the Secret Women’s Business fishing competition.”
Projects completed in the Top End so far are Banyan Farm, Daly River Inn, Hi-Way Inn Daly Waters and Point Stuart Wilderness Lodge NT.
Projects completed in Central Australia so far are Banka Banka West Station and Tourist Park, Tilmouth Well Roadhouse, Threeways Roadhouse, Ti Tree Farm Garden & Ti Tree Food Barn.
The co-contribution initiative was introduced last year, to improve remote roadside facilities and improve customer experience for the Territory’s drive tourism market.
It has also led to plenty of work in the pipeline for the Territory’s construction industry.
As part of Budget 2021, the Government announced an additional $4 million in funding for a second round of grants.
