  • Without sponsorship we couldn't operate – it’s that simple. With sponsorship, dozens of us get to create, perform, inspire, encourage and teach theatre, acting and live performance skills."Claire Bamford - Catprint Theatre Productions - Warburton
  • Our sponsors are all local and so not only has sponsorship drawn attention to our event but also to local businesses and the wider Warburton community. Without sponsorship it would not be possible to put on our event."David Hoffman – Community Bank® Warburton Up & Running
  • ECOSS is incredibly grateful for the major sponsorship support we have had for our events over the years of our existence. It’s meant we have been able to deliver sustainability education to the community and run big free accessible festivals at ECOSS in Wesburn and Ecotopia at Yarra Junction. We live in a low socio-economic area and without this support we would not be able to make our events so accessible."Chelsea McNab – ECOSS

Hi Everyone. Our apologies for any confusion stemming from our post. If you read the entire Expression of Interest, our intent is not to close the Centre. We are only considering subletting a portion of the space in order to find a more sustainable model for the business. It is encouraging to know our current offerings are valued, which is one of our questions, and we welcome your input as we consider ways to STAY OPEN. We too value all aspects of the Waterwheel Centre and hope we can find a way to continue to fully serve our community and its visitors.

Affectionately known as the waterwheel? We always used to call it the rack of lamb

Not such an exciting opportinity for the locals renting the space to showcase and retail their art. Pretty disappointing.

Michelle Fisher The EES included a new visitors centre with paid staff, so perhaps we don't need our current one any more?

Tourist destination without a visitor information centre....🤨

Well All the news about Warburton seems to be very sad. Losing our special things

The greatest brewery/food location on the strip 🤌🏻

Is this the end of the Visitors Centre and retail space for local artists??

I thought this was a community space?

So no longer to be operated as information centre, local artist sales? Where will that go or is the town losing that facility?

Nothing to rejoice about here. Sucks. 🤬. Not everything of value can be measured in $$$

Michelle, that's not exciting, that's a tragedy.

Trading with a trusted account manager is what can make your dreams come through. For me Mrs KRISTINA SCOTT has the best trading strategies to win. I never believed on any post recommending online trading until I gave a try and the outcome was great for me. Making $10,150 out of $1000 was a whole lot of profit for me. Thank me later you can contact her via; WhatsApp number:+1(360)504‑6439 Email:Kristinascott122@gmail.com
