This project has created a brand new croquet pavilion to accommodate the Phillip Island Croquet Club’s increasing membership base. The new facility will include accessible amenities, a multi-purpose/social space, toilets, storage and a kitchenette. The community will benefit from the much needed facility upgrade at the Blue Gum Reserve, which is funded through the State Government’s Stimulus Funding program, Bass Coast Shire Council and Phillip Island Croquet Club.
