Naming Former Hospital Site

The City of Mount Gambier wishes to thank all community members who provided a suggestion for the name of theĀ Former Hospital site. Your suggestions will now be reviewed by Council.

Once reviewed by Council a short list of five will be selected for a final community vote.

Thank you again for your contribution.

The City of Mount Gambier encourages all interested persons to suggest a name for the Former Hospital Site.

The Old Mount Gambier Hospital site commenced it's transformation in October, 2013. The Laundry was preserved due to the distinctive barrel vaulted curved roof design and the panoramic view over the city.

The laundry's position on the slopes of a hill will make it the ideal venue for concerts and other special events, with the expansive shelter, toilets and lighting creating a year-round social gathering space. Council has already received enquiries about booking the venue for weddings.

The City of Mount Gambier has used a significant portion of the pulverized material to restore the surrounding land and return the site to its original contours. With the large expanse of grass and ample parking this site can be used all year round for a variety of activities.

You are encouraged to suggest an appropriate name for the area and submit to Council. Your suggestions will then be reviewed by Council and a shortlist of five will be selected for a final community vote.

Should you have any queries, or require additional information please contact Council's Director Operational Services, Daryl Sexton on (08) 8721 2521.
