2023 was a big year for our expansion. In mid-December we have all our buildings up with roofs on, work starting on solar panels, power lines have been dropped underground, and work has started on the pathways and basic grass landscaping.

We hope to be able to start offering services from mid 2024. We can’t wait to show you our new facilities.

We still have lots of fundraising to do to fit our and furnish the buildings, have better landscaping and install all the civils – check out our key fundraising event for 2024 here: Lake High, Great Victorian Walk for Autism.
