The Twelve Apostles Redevelopment Project in Australia has marked a major milestone through its official partnership with First Nations Corp. Moreover, the Federal and Victorian Governments are working ’round the clock to ensure the project’s continued progression. In regards to ensuring that culture remains a priority focus, the project has also partnered with the Eastern Maar Aboriginal Corporation (EMAC).
Quite impressively, the Twelve Apostles Redevelopment Project in Australia strives to transform the precinct. In addition to making it safe as well as easier to enjoy, for both locals and tourists. Furthermore, the $108 million redevelopment is a part of the broader Geelong City Deal.
Additionally, it doubles up as the next stage of projects delivered under the Shipwreck Coast Master Plan. Alongside community consultation, the plan was developed over a period of three years.
