Visitors set to enjoy Cambarville restoration
Friday 24 August, 2012
Visitors to the historic site of the Cambarville township near Marysville can now enjoy restored facilities while learning more about the fascinating history of the township.
Member for Gembrook Brad Battin said the $150,000 Victorian Government investment ensured that all facilities were repaired or replaced following the damage caused by the Black Saturday bushfires. See media release.
The completed works are a great news to one of Victoria’s true hidden gems.
Visitors now have the opportunity to learn about life in the remote timber mill town in the mid-1900s through new interpretive signs that show the township as it was in its heyday.
Constructed from natural bush timbers, a new rotunda has been built to blend into the bush and historic timber surroundings, and provides visitors with all weather picnic facilities and shelter during the cooler months of the year.
The construction works and interpretation signs at the Cambarville township were delivered following the development of a comprehensive Heritage Action Plan for the site.
Much of the Cumberland Walk has also been restored. The walk leaves from Cambarville and passes through dense cool temperate rainforest, taking in many attractions including The Tall Tree, Cora Lyn Falls, and Cumberland Falls.
Cambarville is located near the Yarra Ranges National Park - Melway Map 610 U10.
