Lake Macquarie History

Griffen Road

Named after a deceased Lake Macquarie WWII veteran, Colin Henry Griffen on 31 December 1998 by council. The council acquired the large Hawkins Sanitary Depot property and established the Teralba Worm Farm Vermiculture Project using the old buildings on the site. This is a joint project, which commenced in 1999 and was a joint initiative between LMCC City Parks, the EPA and LMCC Waste Services.
