The Lakes Hub at Meningie was opened by the Mayor of the Coorong Council Roger Strother on 27th November 2012.
The Meningie office provides the local community with access to a wide range of information about the projects underway around Lake Albert, as well as providing advice and assistance for locals to become directly involved in some of those projects.
Meningie Lakefront Habitat Restoration Project.
The Meningie Lakefront Habitat Restoration Project is restoring the habitat along the Lake Albert foreshore at Meningie, as well as providing a more attractive lakefront area for local residents and visitors to enjoy. The area being restored extends from the Meningie Sailing Club to the caravan park, excluding the front of private properties.
Meningie is the gateway to Coorong National Park and is a popular tourist destination. Government, Ngarrindjeri and local communities are worked together to restore Meningie’s lakefront habitat and build resilience into the ecosystem.
By carefully designing the foreshore and planting native vegetation, wildlife and plants are encouraged to return and important breeding sites restored. This will attract tourists to the region.
An interpretive trail along the foreshore includes a textured pathway, seating and information on the environmental and cultural significance of the Coorong and Lower Lakes, providing a focus for tourists.
As well as improving the health of Lake Albert at Meningie, the environmentally sensitive design will encourage visitors to spend longer in the town and learn more about these special wetlands.
