BRINGING LIFE BACK TO THE ENTRANCE

A future Labor Government will invest $1.2 million to bring life back to The Entrance and deliver much-needed upgrades to the area.

The Entrance is a popular place for locals and visitors, but it needs proper investment for the future.

Under this commitment, Labor will invest $750,000 to upgrade Vera’s Watergarden, $175,000 to make the waterfront plaza playspace more accessible, and $170,000 to renovate The Entrance Ocean Baths.

“The Entrance is much-loved by our community, but the town needs a little TLC,” Federal Member for Dobell, Emma McBride said.

“That’s why I’ve been working with Council and community groups to secure these upgrades for our region.”

The Entrance Ocean Baths are an iconic heritage listed site, which have been popular on the Coast for generations.

“This investment will improve water quality at the Baths by upgrading the pipes and pump system, so locals and visitors can swim safely and comfortably all year round,” Ms. McBride said.

“All too often, I hear from regular swimmers who say the Baths are either empty when they go, or the water quality isn’t up to scratch.”

As part of this upgrade, Labor will also invest $40,000 to install shade sails at the Baths’ grandstand seating, and another $100,000 for the clubhouse.

Labor will breathe life back into The Entrance because this is what the Coast deserves.
