    Victorian Desalination Plant in Wonthaggi, Australia

    Getting to know rural Gippsland area

    Meet up at the Desal Plant for a tour. The plant has been strongly opposed by the Greens and the local community. It has been a massive investment that bypasses the need to consider more realistic – but politically fraught – options.

    Some of our members have suggested it is worth visiting to get a better understanding of energy usage and environmental implications. This tour will be a fact-finding exercise, and anyone who is interested in coming is welcome to join us.

    At this stage it is likely that a number of cars will be leaving Melbourne to arrive at the plant at 11am for an 11:15 meet-up.

    You can also meet us later at  ‘Wolf on Murray’  - 1 Murray Street, Wonthaggi - ​for a nibble, and natter with some local Green.

    After we'll head to a farm ​for a visit to a farm regeneration project, and to view wetlands.

    To express an interest in getting a lift with others, or to go independently, please contact Sally on 0400 371 635, or email sallylm825@gmail.com
