The Eildon Pondage is enjoyed by many in the community, while also attracting visitors from all over. Whether you like to fish, run, walk or relax around the pondage with a BBQ or picnic, it’s a fabulous spot, but we want to make it even better!

To improve the Eildon Pondage area, Murrindindi Shire Council is developing an Eildon Pondage Precinct Masterplan. The Masterplan presents a unique opportunity to enhance this important area in Eildon for both locals and visitors.

Council would like to know how you use the Pondage and your ideas on how we could improve the area. With your help, the Masterplan will identify key projects, which will help Council and other agencies prioritise and seek the funding required to deliver these projects.

Community members and visitors can get involved by completing a survey on Council’s online community engagement platform, The Loop. Feedback closes on 9 October 2023.

Murrindindi Shire Council’s Mayor John Walsh said “Developing the Eildon Pondage Masterplan is an essential requirement to underpin our applications for funding. We already have some great ideas on how to improve the Pondage precinct that arose from the Eildon Community Plan. Before locking it down, we want to ensure the Masterplan has considered everyone's ideas for making this place even more attractive and accessible. That's why we need your input on how you use the Pondage and any improvements you would like to see. Your feedback will help us shape the Masterplan and prioritise the projects which in turn will strengthen our case for grants."
