South Australian Premier Steven Marshall toured Wulanda Recreation and Convention Centre this morning and met with Elected Members early this afternoon to discuss strategic priorities during a whirlwind day trip to Mount Gambier.

City of Mount Gambier Mayor Lynette Martin was pleased to host a tour for the Premier through Council’s largest ever infrastructure project currently under construction at Olympic Park, Mount Gambier.

“We are very excited about the development of Wulanda, it will provide substantial year round indoor facilities, addressing many community needs both now and for future generations to come,” Mayor Martin said.

“The project received $10 million in State Government funding through the Regional Growth Fund, so I was very pleased to show the Premier through the facility so he could see how it is developing.”

The Premier was impressed with the construction occurring on site.

Following the tour, Premier Marshall met with the Mayor, Council’s senior executives and candidate for Mount Gambier Ben Hood to discuss key priorities for our community, including investment opportunities, our strong regional position and tourism.

We talked about opportunities to build on the success of Wulanda and our partnership in activating the Blue Lake and Crater Lakes area. We have so many amazing spaces and working together we can build even stronger connections. - Mayor Martin
