Paynesville plan to pursue potential
The Slip Road area of Paynesville could be turned into a thriving maritime precinct if the Paynesville Business and Tourism Association is successful in gaining government funding.
The plan one of five priorities set out by the association for the next five years, with others including a boost to the Raymond Island koala experience for visitors, and adding new on-water activities and land-based events.
Martin Richardson from the Association said the Paynesville foreshore has a lot of potential for further development.
"The Slip Road area in Paynesville is an extensive area of foreshore area on McMillan Strait.
"At the moment it's a gravel car park and we would like to see berthing for visiting boats, recreational vessels, family facilities, foreshore walkways and boardwalks and really to turn that are into a prime foreshore area for people to visit."
