Building a Better Future for Dunkley


The Albanese Government has delivered its first Budget, which is responsible, right for the times, and begins to build a better future for Australia.


Included in the Budget is a plan for responsible cost of living measures, such as


  • Cheaper child care for approximately 5800 local families
  • Progressively expanding Paid Parental Leave to six months by 2026
  • Cheaper Medicines
  • More affordable housing
  • Getting wages moving again


The Albanese Government is also delivering on its election commitments made to the Dunkley community. Projects include:


  • Upgrading Emil Madsen Reserve
  • Redevelopment of Frankston Basketball Stadium
  • A new Medicare Urgent Care Clinic
  • Redevelopment of Carrum Downs Regional Park
  • Upgrades to the science rooms at Mount Eliza Secondary College
  • Funding for the Frankston Regional Arts trail
  • New music equipment for Patterson River Secondary College
  • Upgrades for Lyrebird Community Centre
  • New equipment for Langwarrin Community Centre
  • Funding for Nairm Marr Djambana
  • Investing in First Peoples’ Health and Wellbeing
  • Upgrades to Langwarrin Skate Park
  • New Community Battery in Carrum Downs
  • Funding for a kitchen and community centre in Langwarrin for Sikh Volunteers Australia


These projects come on top of the commitment to give the Frankston LGA access to Distribution Priority Area status. Federal Member for Dunkley Peta Murphy is proud that Labor has delivered on this commitment, which has already helped a local clinic recruit new doctors.


Local Member for Dunkley, Peta Murphy, said: “I look forward to working with local councils, community groups and organisations as we deliver on these commitments for Dunkley. Investment in our health, schools and community services is so important, and I wish to thank all those who advocated for these projects.
