Waterview MD, Mr Theodore Drivas said:
“It brings me great joy to thank our wonderful community for their kind support since 2005, which has helped make Waterview an international icon for events, supported by our very own Waterview Café, open 7 days a week. The Waterview Community Fun Day will be an annual event to celebrate what is great about our culturally diverse local and visitor community who live in these picturesque parklands, Lake Belvedere, 35kms of cycleway/walkway all centrally located.”
