Fly a kite and talk about Rosebud’s destiny


DESTINATION Rosebud will be the topic of discussion at the Rosebud Kite Festival, Sunday 13 March.

The project is aimed at invigorating the township by bringing in investment, jobs and opportunities for the community.

Six key elements include: streetscape works, Jetty Rd forecourt, lighting, Village Green and Soundshell, township entrance features and a foreshore “playspace”.

Streetscape works include footpath renewal along Point Nepean Rd (Chinaman’s Creek to Sixth Av), bin renewal and garden bed implementation;

Jetty Rd forecourt includes shared zones, upgrades to the toilet and public plaza, including shelters and barbecues;

Lighting includes improved safety and amenity to Rosebud commercial foreshore zones;

Village Green and Sound Shell include improvement works, lighting to improve safety and amenity, and event infrastructure, such as the power supply;

Township entrance features include a gateway artistic structure to the Rosebud commercial zone, and the foreshore playspace includes a nature-based theme with flying fox and balancing course.

Shire officers will be on-site opposite Durham Place, 11am-5pm, Sunday 13 March, sharing the information booth with the Rosebud Chamber of Commerce.

Rosebud Kite Festival is hosted by Rosebud Chamber of Commerce. It claims to be Victoria’s premier kite flying event, featuring live entertainment, stalls and rides. The shire sponsors the event.
