The Mount Victoria Village Recovery Package

Under the Australian Government’s Black Summer Bushfire Recovery Grants Program, Council has secured almost $900,000 to deliver a package of works for Mount Victoria Village Centre.

This comprehensive renewal package will support social and economic recovery through a range of initiatives identified with the Mount Victoria community. It will provide a number of important upgrades to infrastructure and enhancements to village amenity.

Between late 2022 and mid 2024, the following improvements and support will be provided:

Improved village marketing and promotion
An interpretative heritage trail to guide visitors through the village and a new Visitor Information Sign to promote local experiences.

Enhanced village centre amenity
New planting, street trees and seating to revitalise the village. Formal closure of middle section of the heritage staircase at the Great Wester Highway and improved visual amenity to the immediate area of the heritage staircase.

Mount Victoria Memorial Park renewals
A renewed entrance to the park, carpark upgrade including upgrade of the adjacent storm water channel, accessible footpaths, visual amenity improvements to the park water fountain and sculptural installations by local artists.

Smart City initiatives
A local weather station to improve bushfire threat knowledge and smart sensors to improve asset management; and

Business support package
Mentoring and resources to equip local businesses to better prepare for disasters and enable them to build a strong business support network.

The project will empower and build a stronger community by supporting the social, economic and built environment recovery through:

  • better facilities for residents,
  • visitor marketing opportunities,
  • business support, and
  • improved access and amenity.

Council is commencing broader community engagement in late 2022 for the Village Centre and Mount Victoria Memorial Park improvements.
