The Master Plan project has mapped out the growth in Willum Warrain over the past years, and has identified the clear need, supported throughout the consultations, for the Gathering Place to continue to grow, construct new facilities, and take on greater lease responsibilities outside of its current footprint. The Shire has sought the development of this Master Plan to clarify Willum Warrain’s Vision and overall direction for the next 10-20 years
With an increase in population and interest in the site, Willum Warrain has now outgrown its facilities. Future projections show in five years there will be over 10,000 visitors per year and local membership will increase to 3000 people.

can you help bring our vision to life?
Of course, this big dreaming comes with a big price tag … $6.8m! But we are determined. And the long journey starts with first steps. We are applying for government and philanthropic grants that will get us a good way there. Some grants are looked upon more favourably if we can show strong local support or provide matching funding – this is where we need you.
