$6 million for renovation to home of Victorian cricket

The home of Victorian Cricket will get a major revamp with a re-elected Government committing $6 million toward the second stage of the redevelopment of Junction Oval, including the new Headquarters for FightMND. Treasurer, Josh Frydenberg, said the investment will secure Junction Oval as the home of women's cricket for years to come. "New lights will enable Women's Big Bash League and international women's cricket to be played in a stadium environment at night," the Treasurer said. Senator for Victoria, Jane Hume, said the redevelopment of the Kevin Murray grandstand will include office space for the FightMND foundation for at least the next 10 years rent-free.

VIC: A new partnership forum to help Close the Gap

The Victorian Government has reached another milestone in driving forward nation-leading reform with Victoria's First Peoples through the creation of a new Partnership Forum for Closing the Gap. The newly elected members of the new Partnership Forum will work with the State Government to make decisions on implementation of the National Agreement on Closing the Gap. "Aboriginal people know what is best for themselves, their families and their communities. The new Partnership Forum ensures Aboriginal people and organisations are making decisions that affect their lives," said Victorian Acting Minister for Aboriginal Affairs Ros Spence.

NSW: Private landholders offered funding to protect NSW koala habitat

The NSW Government is releasing funding support for private landholders to protect koala habitat in the Northern Tablelands as one of the first actions under the new NSW Koala Strategy. The $193.3 million NSW Koala Strategy, released in April, is the biggest financial commitment by any government to secure the future of koalas in the wild. NSW Minister for Environment James Griffin said Armidale is one of 10 climate resilient koala stronghold locations identified in the Strategy, which will receive extensive engagement, funding and support over the life of the Strategy. "Through the NSW Biodiversity Conservation Trust (BCT), we're offering funding to eligible private landholders in Armidale and Uralla to protect important areas of koala habitat, which will also support dozens of other plant and animal species," Mr Griffin said.
