Maintenance on the Bunyip

The Bunyip at Sturt Reserve will be closed for urgent maintenance this week from 4 July 2017 until 7 July 2017.

The Bunyip has not been operating at full capacity for some months and with the colder weather bringing less visitors to Sturt Reserve it is an appropriate time to undertake an inspection to ascertain what work is required.

The water will need to be drained from the enclosure so that technicians can inspect the hydraulics and steel frame that supports the firbreglass model.  This is expected to take 3-4 days.

It is anticipated that the Bunyip will be back in service  by the weekend (8-9 July 2017) - in time for the school holidays !!

This is an inspection only.  An assessment of the work required to restore the Bunyip will be made including an assessment of costs before the actual work is undertaken.

For more information please contact the Manager, City Assets, Malcolm Downie, on 8539 1145.
