Regional Victoria Parliamentary Secretary Danielle Green was in Clunes on Monday morning to officially unveil the Clunes streetscape project, which upgraded Collins Place, improved the forecourt to the Clunes Town Hall, and enhanced access to the Warehouse.  

Works also included changes in ground levels with tiered landscaping, upgraded street furniture, resolved drainage issues, provided new paths, and created a crossing point to the Clunes Town Hall.

The official unveiling also marked the official completion of the Creswick streetscape project, which has transformed the former town’s bowls club following the floods of 2010 and 2011. 

The site has been transformed into a kids’ splash park, basketball half-court, a skate park as well as the addition of fixed table tennis tables. 

“The revitalised streetscapes in Hepburn Shire will ensure they meet the needs of local residents and businesses and continue to attract visitors from outside the region,” Ms Green said in a statement.
