After 4 years of Construction the Steel mill is finally complete, This has brought growth to the town but one problem... there is no way for immigrants to get to Silverwater. Construction has begun on a landing point for vessels and a fishing marina.

Things have changed since the mill was built, a rail line has been introduced running from the steel mill through the town and farmland all the way to the land west of Avondale. The towns growth has also been built over former farmland and local council, Silverwater Shire Council, has plans to expand the Town over the entire Narrow Peninsula. Creating a vibrant multicultured City with Waterfronts on both Avondale Harbour and Lake Elanora.

Here is the town today.

In the 18th century English explorers were sailing down the Pacific Ocean down the coast of a new land. Seas were heavy and storms were brutal, the sailors were forced to enter the mighty Avondale River's narrow mouth. When they entered the seemingly small waterway, they were stunned by the massive Harbour and nearby Lake. The weather soon cleared up and the sailors landed on the shore of a narrow Peninsula. They settled the area, naming the settlement "Silverwater" after the Harbours 'silver' coloured water during the storm. This is where the Region of Avondale's History started.

The area where silverwater was founded:

After the settlement began the first streets were layed down, quickly succeeded by the construction of homes:
