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.

Koolunga Project Focus Group

We are looking for community members to join the Koolunga Project Focus Group.

Focus group members will be invited to participate in facilitated online focus groups held over several sessions.

The sessions will provide an opportunity to:

  • discuss and establish the important values of the reserve
  • develop a collaborative vision for the site
  • assist with the development of a holistic future direction plan.

The focus group outcomes will be made available for comment and input from the broader community via Council’s Have Your Say Page.
