Federal Member for Gippsland Darren Chester is encouraging locals to gain a better appreciation of the Latrobe Valley’s rich migration history ahead of Australia Day. Mr Chester inspected the completed works at Gippsland Immigration Park at Morwell with a new pathway improving access to information boards. The Gippsland Immigration Park Committee of Management was successful in its application to the Stronger Communities Program, which has funded works to extend the concrete pathway around Heritage Walk by 70 metres, ensuring equal access to all abilities.

“Our region has an incredible migrant history and the park is a testimony to all the different cultures which have come together to build the community we enjoy today,” Mr Chester said.

“Well done to all the volunteers who have made it possible for locals and visitors to understand our heritage at this important park.”
