Funding for Wardang Island

WardangIsland.JPGWardang Island, just off the west coast of the Yorke Peninsula is to be rejuvenated, providing economic, recreational and cultural opportunities for Aboriginal people.

$2.6 million of Federal funding has been secured for demolition of dilapidated buildings and the construction of accommodation and new facilities for the Indigenous Rangers on the Island.

The Aboriginal Lands Trust has purchased a barge which will be used for the remediation project and also for ongoing access to the Island and support for Indigenous Protected Area activities.

Premier Steven Marshall says these initiatives have been developed in close consultation with local Aboriginal people and communities through the Aboriginal Lands Trust and the Narungga Nation Aboriginal Corporation.
