The Mareeba Wildcats will offer a sausage sizzle, hamburgers and chicken kebabs for sale, so bring along your gold coins to buy a sausage and support the Club.
The project was funded by the Department of State Development, Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning to provide the Splash Park and upgrades to existing infrastructure at the Mareeba Aquatic Centre to the value of $1.5M. The remaining construction funding will be contributed by Mareeba Shire Council, who will also be responsible for the ongoing maintenance and operating costs.
