The proposed ‘Tatungalung’ boardwalk linking Eastern Beach and Main Beach has moved a step closer with local consultants working on concept designs.
Ryan Summerton (centre) from Archistyle and Ash Carroll (right) from Lake Tyers Design will prepare the design. It will be displayed for public feedback in coming weeks.
Local MP Darren Chester (left) secured $50,000 to undertake the design and feasibility study for the project, which is named after the original Indigenous people who lived in the region.
“We’ve had preliminary discussions with Indigenous elders on how the boardwalk could tell the story of the original inhabitants and feature current artwork as part of the design,” Mr Chester said.
“It’s an exciting project that can unite our community and tell the story of ancient and modern Lakes Entrance, while providing an outstanding all-abilities exercise option for young and old.
“It’s part of my Active Gippsland plan to give locals and visitors more opportunities to explore and enjoy our beautiful region, and is in addition to work already underway on the Esplanade, Jemmys Point and Bullock Island.”
