Federal Member for O'Connor

  • The Coalition Government invested $500,000 in the $2.3 million clubhouse facility.
  • Denmark residents celebrated the opening of new clubhouse building at Denmark Riverside Club today.
  • Visitors to the new clubhouse will be able to enjoy lawn bowls, dragon boating, kayaking and other fun activities.

Denmark Riverside Club's new clubhouse is now open, complete with new furniture, large function areas, a modern new kitchen and landscaping.

Minister for Regional Development Fiona Nash said moving out of the temporary premises and into the clubhouse was a huge improvement for Denmark Riverside Club members and visitors.

“The new clubhouse replaces the Denmark Bowling Club and now caters for lawn bowls, dragon boat, canoe and classic boat groups, and other community groups.

“Being from a rural area myself I know how important these social spaces are and I expect the Denmark and Great Southern Region will truly cherish this new clubhouse.

“I aim to help build the kinds of communities our children and grandchildren want to either stay in or come back to and facilities like this clubhouse do just that.

“The onsite function facilities will be ideal for hosting weddings, community celebrations and conferences.”

Federal Member for O'Connor Rick Wilson said this facility will provide the people of Denmark with a dedicated space for a wide range of community activities.

“I'm delighted the Coalition Government is supporting projects like this throughout O'Connor,” Mr Wilson said.

“Congratulations to the Denmark Riverside Club committee for their vision and commitment to seeing the completion of this project.”

The new clubhouse at Denmark Riverside Club was jointly funded by the Coalition Government ($500,000), the Great Southern Development Commission ($212,800), Lotterywest ($390,659), the Shire of Denmark ($490,852) and the Denmark Riverside Club ($730,017).
