Former Art Deco Millaa Millaa Cheese Factory Demolished

The historic Art Deco Millaa Millaa Cheese factory was demolished recently.
The landmark Art Deco building in the township of Millaa Millaa, the former Millaa Millaa Cheese Factory, has been demolished. This is sad news for a township that doesn't have many historic buildings left.  This demolition is short sighted as Millaa Millaa isn't the thriving town, with many other historic shops having been lost in the past few decades.

Reports may have suggested the building was an eyesore, but I wonder what will replace the historic cheese factory at a time when the township has lost many of it's buildings and services.  Likely, 10 foot tropical grass will take its place.  Have there been any ideas as to what will replace this building in order to draw more business and tourists to the town. Without such buildings as the Millaa Millaa Cheese Factory, the township loses part of it's social and built history.
