Due to record rainfall, we're behind in our mowing schedule. We're unable to use our mowers while the ground is saturated and the long grass takes longer to mow. Our crews are working hard to catch up. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

VARMS relocation

The Victorian Association of Radio Model Soaring (VARMS) facilities will be relocated to the Rowville Recreation Reserve. 

About VARMS

The Victorian Association of Radio Model Soaring (VARMS) is a group for aero-modellers in Knox who build and fly radio-controlled gliders.

VARMS is currently based at the Knox Regional Sports Park, located adjacent to the State Basketball Centre.

The State Basketball Centre redevelopment has impacted the available space required by VARMS to fly model aircraft.

The Rowville Recreation Reserve was identified as the preferred new site for VARMS.

New facility

The new VARMS facility at Rowville Recreation Reserve will include:

  • a clear fly zone area
  • a runway for flying model aircraft
  • a suitable buffer zone from existing buildings
  • a clubhouse
  • car park area
  • a new left turn entry lane from Stud Road.

Budget

The total project budget for the relocation of VARMS is $1.5 million. 

Timings

Construction commenced in January 2022 and is expected to be completed in September 2022.
