Notification of Proposed nbnTM Radio Network Base Station Facility
The National Broadband Network (nbn) is a high speed broadband network designed to
reach 100 per cent of Australian premises and provide the communications infrastructure
to help us stop falling behind in an increasingly online world.
nbn is committed to delivering leading edge broadband services to all Australians by
leveraging the three types of technology available – fixed line, fixed wireless and satellite,
depending on location.
As part of the fixed radio (wireless) component of the Network, nbn is proposing to
expand the existing radio network base station at 65 Kilcunda Ridge Road, Kilcunda Vic
3995 to provide high quality wireless broadband services to customers in the surrounding
The facilities proposed will involve the installation of 3 additional panel antennas
(dimensions approx 750mm height x 300mm width x 115mm depth) on the existing tower.
The installation of associated radio equipment including RRU’s (dimensions approx 50cm
height x 43cm in width x 13cm depth) are also to be added to new and existing panel
antennas along with RAU behind existing dish. Furthermore the current single equipment
shelter will be replaced by 2 new ground based equipment shelters adjacent to the tower.
nbn regards the proposed installation as a Low Impact Facility under the
Telecommunications (Low-Impact Facilities) Determination 1997. In the circumstances, it
does not require planning approval from Bass Coast Shire Council.

obtained by calling Clinton Northey on

ARGUABLY Korumburra’s most famous son,
certainly one of them anyway, is Lieutenant Gen-
eral Sir Stanley Savige, who is credited with found-
ing Legacy on his return from WW1.
So, anyone who can claim a relationship with Lt-
Gen Savige is basically Korumburra royalty.
One such person is George Walmsley who was
buried in the Korumburra Cemetery in 1898, al-
though there’s no headstone to mark the location
of his grave.
That will all be rectified on Saturday, February
4 when the descendants of George and Honora
(O’Shea) Walmsley assemble in town for a memo-
rial dedication at the Korumburra Cemetery at
11am, followed by a reunion.
“A lot of people could turn-up, we don’t know,”
said one of the organisers of the day, Barry Walms-
ley of Wangaratta.
They had 12 children and, wait for it, there were
One of George and Nora’s children was Anne,
‘Aunty Annie’ they called her, and she was the
mother of Stanley Savige, born at Morwell in June
1890 but actually residing in Korumburra where
he got his early education.
So, it’s the grandfather of Stanley Savige who will
be honoured on February 4.
“It the exact day he would have been 200 years
old, if he was alive,” said Barry.
“His son George was a guard on the train from
1898 until after the First World War. He had eight
children of which four were born in Korumburra.
Eldest son Richard was killed in WW1, August
1916 on the Somme in France. Their sixth child,
daughter Ann Nora, was the mother of Lt General
Sir Stanley Savige, founder of Legacy.
So if you have a connection with the Walmsleys,
call Barry to register your interest (his number
is 5722 2546 or 0409 110 257) or simply come
along on the day.
George Walmsley (Barry’s great grandfather) was
born in Leeds UK in 1817. Transported to Tasma-
nia as a convict in 1838. Died Sept 1898. Arrived
in Korumburra 1898 with wife Nora (Honora) ne
O’Shea. Died April 1910.
There were 12 Children, born predominantly
in Yandiot near Castlemaine. They also had 60
“He and Nora are both buried, in adjacent graves,
in the cemetery at Korrumburra. As the graves are
unmarked we will be placing a plaque on George’s
grave at around 11 am on that morning.”
There’ll be a reunion for the family of Korumburra pioneer, George Walmsley on Saturday,
February 4, starting the Korumburra Cemetery at 11am. Pictured is George and his wife
