Port Campbell mobile tower upgrades

My question is for the Minister for Innovation, Medical Research and the Digital Economy. Port Campbell is a beautiful coastal town in my electorate, but it needs a mobile tower, not just for amenity but for safety. This small town is usually home to 350 people, but in summer it balloons to 5000 people. On top of that, the Twelve Apostles host 15 000 daytrippers daily in peak season. Existing mobile coverage fails to cover the population, unfortunately, and whilst these projects are usually federally funded, Corangamite Shire Council wants this project to be considered by the state government, including through its Connecting Victoria scheme. Minister, will your government fund these mobile tower upgrades in Port Campbell, or if you deem it not to be in your remit, will you write to your federal counterpart to ask them to fund it?
