Thank you to all of the residents, stakeholders and members of the community who provided feedback as part of the recent consultation phase of the Engagement Summary Report and Values Plan for Koolunga Native Reserve. We are currently working through all of your comments to ensure we accurately and adequately capture the community sentiment for the project. We will report back to you on next steps shortly.

We are developing a Future Directions Plan for Koolunga Native Reserve in Ferntree Gully, and would like your input.

The creation of this plan follows recent community engagement on a proposed wetland in the reserve.

The plan will:

  • highlight what is important to the community
  • help inform plans for the future use of the site
  • align the ongoing management activities at the reserve.
