TWO major south-west community projects are set to become a reality following federal government grants totalling $1.08 million.

The upgrade of facilitiies at Mortlake’s DC Farran oval into a multi-purpose community facility and the construction of the Australian Kelpie Centre at Casterton will proceed after getting grants from the federal government’sNational Stronger Regions Fund.

The Mortlake project received $350,000 from the fund while the Kelpie Centre got $658,230.

Mortlake project committee chair Mick Murphy said he was “absolutely delighted’ about the grant.

Mr Murphy said the two-year project had received great support from Moyne Shire Council, which contributed $280,000 and Member for Wannon Dan Tehan.

User groups, western Victorian philanthropic groups and generous companies and individuals wouldcontributethe remainder of the estimated $830,000 project cost.

Mr Murphy said the project would upgrade the social area at the oval’s rooms, including its kitchen and bar, along with its dressing rooms and toilets, to make them attractive not only for sports functions but also for community and corporate events.

“We want to turn it into a regional hub,” he said.

The project would also provide a indoor space for sports such as cricket, netball and football, Mr Murphy said.

Glenelg Shire Council chief executiveGreg Burgoyne said the $1.5 million purpose-built Kelpie Interpretive Centre woulddrive tourism and economic activity in the region.

Apart from the federal grant, the council will contribute the remainder of the cost.

The kelpie centre willreplace the town’s dated visitor information centre. It will not onlytell the story of how the kelpie breed became Australia’s favourite working dog but also detail the town’s rich pastoral and indigenous heritage as Victoria’s first European inland settlement.
