Building Better Regions helps fund three Kimberley projects

Communities across the Durack electorate will benefit from a share of more than $4 million in funding under Round 3 of the Federal Government’s highly successful Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF).

Federal Member for Durack and Minister for the Environment Melissa Price said she is delighted that Durack has fared so well in this round and that the Government’s investment in local projects under Round 3 will help grow the economy and build a strong future for Australia’s regions.

“More than $400,000 of this funding has been allocated to three projects in the Kimberley under both the BBRF Infrastructure and Community Investment streams,” she said.

“The projects will benefit the community which is a great outcome for Durack.

“It is projects such as these that make our regional communities even better places to live, work and raise a family - and also visit, and I’m excited to see the positive difference this funding will make to the community.

“In this round we are also investing more than $70 million in regional tourism infrastructure, to support those many regional communities that rely on tourism to bolster their economy,” said the Minister.

Kimberley successful projects are:

Under the Infrastructure stream:

  • Camballin Looma Community Inc for Camballin Campers Base upgrade of sewer treatment plant and ablutions: $311,200
    For new eco-friendly sewer treatment plant and ablution facilities at Camballin Campers Base, a caravan park owned and operated by the local indigenous people of Looma Community in the Kimberley.

Under the Community investment stream:

  • Broome Chamber of Commerce for the West Kimberley Regional Food Group Branding Strategy: $75,000
    The project will deliver a food group and branding strategy capable of generating improved employment and economic outcomes for regional businesses in the West Kimberley.
  • Shire of Broome for the Chinatown Discovery Festival: $32,739
    Funding for an inaugural three day festival (26-28 April 2019) celebrating the traditional cultural and historical elements of Broome and showcasing local artists, in addition to art projects from outside of Broome.
