The old Lakeland Hotel is taking shape and band manager Adele Gooding says they hope to open this summer.
They have over 15 local people employed and she said they have tried to hire from each local band but also hire some non-First Nations workers. She said it has helped some workers get the IT hours needed.
They will be holding training soon for customers service. The training will be in partnership with Lakes District Aboriginal Training to Employment Society and PGNAETA.
