Wulanda Recreation and Convention Centre has won the SA/NT award for ‘Community Facility of the Year’ at the 2023 Parks and Leisure Australia Regional Awards of Excellence.
The Parks and Leisure Australia Regional Awards of Excellence celebrate the outstanding initiatives and innovative efforts of 'the people behind the places' which promote good use of leisure time for a number of social, environmental and economic benefits to the community.
The ‘Community Facility of the Year’ award recognises facilities that demonstrate innovative features of design, development and operation.
“We’re very proud of this fantastic community facility and those who work hard to make Wulanda a place for all,” said Mayor of Mount Gambier Lynette Martin.
“Wulanda is a game changer for our city. It is the result of an enormous amount of campaigning, design, and construction over many years by many people,” said Mayor Martin.
The award nomination was submitted by project architects DesignInc.
We are extremely proud to see the contribution that Wulanda brings to the community be recognised by the Parks and Leisure Association. DesignInc Associate Director Ben Luppino
“We again thank the City of Mount Gambier council for enabling us to be part of the collaborative journey throughout the project, it is great to see such a positive response from the community."
Wulanda Recreation and Convention Centre is now up for the National Awards of Excellence, which will be announced by Parks and Leisure Australia later this year.
