Outdoor Essentials Arrive at Raukkan
A Township Enriched with Culture & History
Situated on the lands of the Njarrindjeri people, and lying on the banks of Lake Alexandrina, Coorong District Council have been working on the development of a 4.6km walking trail in the township of Raukkan. The walking trail travel around the township of Raukkan and its surround environment, taking in spectacular view of lake Alexandrina, the Terringie Wetlands and the Narrung Peninsular.
The Raukkan Trail will eventually link up with the Murray Coorong Trail- a 450km trail being developed from Cadell in the Riverland to Salt Creek in the Coorong National Park.
As part of this amazing initiative, Terrain Group had the privilege to be part of the project, where they were contracted to incorporate shelter and seating at the start of the walking trail, located on the foreshore of Lake Alexandrina. These outdoor essentials will provide rest and shelter for walkers and the nearby Aboriginal community of Raukkan.

“These trails are designed to encourage trail users to immerse themselves in the beautiful environment on offer. The significance of the walking trail will not only bring the Raukkan community together but will also allow walkers to learn and gain an understanding of Raukkan’s deep Aboriginal history”
Kellie Jaensch, Senior Community & Tourism Officer, Raukkan/Coorong District Council

Like the majority of our products at Terrain Group, the All Aluminium Series Toilet buildings are 100% Australian made. When you buy from Terrain Group, you support local businesses, keep more Australians in jobs and enjoy shorter delivery time thanks to reduced shipping.
Anodised aluminium means less maintenance, superior finish and double the structural life of an equivalent steel and timber product. Furthermore, our toilet buildings are designed for flat pack transport, therefore reducing transport volume and weight – another plus for the environment.
Designed to reduce lead and install time, an All Aluminium Series Toilet Building goes up in a few days, once footing and plumbing work is in place. Enjoy lead times from as short as 6 weeks. Our manufacturing and installation team’s capabilities allow us to spend as little time on site as possible, therefore, minimising any interruptions to public spaces.
