A popular Burrungule outdoor activity centre has reopened after closing two years ago. Due to unforeseeable circumstances Burrungle Park Paintball and Laser Tag could no longer operate from the former Burrungle Road site in 2019.
An application was made by owners Wendy and Jo DiCenzo to the Grant District Council to relocate the entertainment complex in February 2019 with final approval being granted seven months later. Two years later Burrungle Park has reopened in a new area located at 484 Carpenter Rocks Road, Compton, just five minutes outside of Mount Gambier.
Burrungle Park Paintball and Laser Tag provide a unique form of entertainment with football, cricket, hockey, and netball clubs, as well as buck shows and kids birthday parties.
Owner Joe DiCenzo said it would have been impossible without the help of a “handful” of generous people. “A huge thankyou to the Ellis family at Coola station because without their heavy machinery we would still be struggling to get stuff out of the ground,” he said. “We would also like to thank Tony Bastian, Bradley Hill, Steven Fisher and Leigh Schultz for helping out.”
Mr DiCenzo said it has been a “strong start” with the business already receiving repeat customers. “The group that was here today was here three weeks ago,” he said. “It is helpful being so much closer to town as kids can come out after school during daylight savings.”
