Artefact were engaged to develop a Heritage Interpretation Strategy, produce content and design for 4 interpretive signs, produce an artefact display for the local library, reused original flagstones in the paving and put together a public talk program, and carry out further Aboriginal community consultation. Artefact managed the transfer of 1189 historical artefacts to Australian History Museum at Macquarie University for display and teaching purposes.
The Oakdale South Industrial Estate is up and running with sites being snapped up by logistics companies and other businesses. Goodman Property Services were pleased with the kudos they got with the community for their relationship to the local library and significant donation of artefacts to Macquarie University.
