In December 2010, the town of Gascoyne Junction was hit by devastating floods when the rain-swollen Gascoyne River broke its banks.
To help re-build the town, the CLGF contributed $2.6 million to the Shire of Upper Gascoyne to undertake several projects, most of which had been planned before the flood.
This included building new housing for shire staff. The accommodation included a three-bedroom house, twin two-bedroom duplexes, and two single persons’ quarters built on land above the one-in-100 year flood level.
The shire also used CLGF funds for a Community Resource Centre and improved amenities at the shire offices.
