Community Consultation: Draft Master Plan for Binna Burra Lodge @ Beechmont Community Centre (the old school site at the round-about)
About this event:
Beech Mountain community members are welcome to attend and (a) get an update on the continuing bushfire recovery efforts at Binna Burra Lodge and (b) share their views on the future of Binna Burra – simply register your attendance below.
For almost nine decades, Binna Burra Lodge has been closely integrated into the Beech Mountain community – a place of stories, experiences and memories. For much of that time it has been the biggest employer on the mountain and the place where local school kids had their first workplace experience. That continues today.
On Sunday 8 September 2019, the heritage listed lodge and pioneer cabins were destroyed at the beginning of the six months of the Australian ‘Black Summer’ bushfires. Closed for 12 months, the remaining infrastructure at Binna Burra is largely now fully operational and the economic and local jobs recovery continues.
‘Since reopening in September 2020, Binna Burra has been developing a new Master Plan for the site. While the focus is on the ‘what’ and ‘where’ of the infrastructure and activities for the new era of Binna Burra, it’s also about social recovery and resilience and how Binna Burra supports our local community.’ Steve Noakes, Beechmont resident and Chairperson, Binna Burra Lodge.
The Headmaster’s Café will be open from 8 am to 2 pm for breakfast, lunch, coffee and cake!
