On Wednesday 20th April, EJE Architecture’s Wildlife Arena and Amenities Buildings at Blackbutt Reserve were opened by Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes. Lucky students from New Lambton South Primary School and a special guest Koala attended the ceremony.
“The construction of the Wildlife Arena and new amenities at Blackbutt realises a vision to protect and enhance the unique qualities of this treasured community asset…” said Nelmes on the day. “The Arena and significant upgrade of the amenities will allow visitors to get up close and personal with the animals at Blackbutt. These wholesale upgrades and improved facilities enable the Reserve to host tourist groups, schools and events in a more interactive way.”
