Warburton Advancement League

For more than 60 years, enthusiastic members of the local commmunity have joined together as the Warburton Advancement League to present a concise and consistent voice on issues relevant to Warburton's growth, prosperity and authenticity. WIth the preservation and development of the river tracks around the Yarra a key achievememnt, WAL can also be acknowledged for a range of projects, big and small, that add to the community.

When: Formed in 1954, an lncorporated committee of 15, 3 year terms, with 5 positions vacated each AGM (held in Novernber).

Why:  For the advancement of the Warburton District, ie. promoting works of improvement, working with Yarra Ranges Council, other township groups and our State and Federal MPs encouraging local trade and attracting visitors.

What: lt would be fair to say that any community facility in Warburton, be it Parks - lncluding Caravan Park, Buildings, 6ks of River Walking Tracks, Swimming Pool (unfortunatly now closed),Town Entrance Sign, Redwood Bridge, Community Bus and Millgrove War Memorial, the League was the main driving force in lobbying, constructing, maintaining and funding these ventures.

Along with these projects the league has been a major player in any community event held in Warburton, ie. Easter Carnival (1960's), Carols by Candlelight, Warburton Up & Running, Cycle Fest

Who:  Anybody who has a passion to be involved in the future of Warburton, be it fundraising, helping with grant appliciations and submissions to Council, general committee work or maintenance of tracks.Please feel free to attend any of our monthly meetings (3rd Wednesday) at the Yarra Ranges Enterprise  Centre  (opposite caravan park).
