Upper Delatite

The 'Upper Delatite' area is a stunning part of our shire stretching from Happy Valley to Mirimbah at the base of Mt Buller. The locality includes the residential areas of Alpine Ridge, Changue Rd, Sawmill Settlement and the homes opposite Pinnacle Valley Resort. The boundaries between Merrijig and Upper Delatite often blur and merge with some residents feeling that they have an affinity with both localities.

Community groups in the 'Upper Delatite' area include:

Sawmill Settlement Water Works and Community Association - email contact: cook@waverider.net.au

Sawmill Settlement Historians Group - email contact: georgie_deyell@hotmail.com

Friends of Changue Road Reserve - email contact:  elary@bigpond.com.au

A number of businesses exist in the area including the Mill Inn restaurant, the Mirimbah Store, Pinnacle Valley Hotel and accommodation and B&B businesses.

Community Planning
Community members from Happy Valley through to Mirimbah created their first community plan during 2011 and in early 2012 the plan was finalised, launched and presented at Council. The plan outlines the things that community members value in their area; and the actions or initiatives they feel will make their community an even happier, healthier and more sustainable place.

The key projects are:

  • A shared walking/cycling trail (now part of the Epic Trail) - now complete.  For more information visit http://bike.mtbuller.com.au/epic.php
  • An open space/play area at Changue Road

The community also wants to advocate for improved telecommunications, sealed road shoulders, road safety and signage and improved fire safety (education and information).
