What’s the latest at the Punmu Activity Hub?
But if you thought that was enough to occupy their time, you were wrong.
There’s a new BMX track, built 5 months ago, a laser tag centre, finished just 6 weeks ago, and just in case the water park was getting a bit ho-hum, they’re adding a plunge pool with slide sometime in the new year.
Now the kids have more ways to burn off energy and another way to cool off on hot summer days.
In Martu Country, and on the edge of the Great Sandy and Gibson deserts, Punmu is one of the most remote communities in Australia.
It is 200 kilometres from the nearest community of Kunawarritji and 700 kilometres from the nearest town, Port Hedland, so building the Punmu Activity Hub took enormous effort.
Many community members and friends have worked hard to build the Hub but special mention must go to the community‘s great friend and engineering mastermind, Donald (McGivor) Graham.
Indigenous.gov.au congratulates all the builders and suppliers who have shown they care about kids and who have sacrificed their time and energy to make the Punmu Activity Hub a great place to hang out.
