Help create the future of Koolunga Native Reserve


Friday, 28 April 2023

Have your say on the Koolunga Native Reserve Future Directions Plan out for consultation until 11.59pm Sunday 28 May.

Located at the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges, the Reserve is one of the early catchments for Blind Creek and later the Dandenong Creek which means it is home to important birds and animals and over 150 native plant species.

The community have told us they value the Reserve for a range of reasons including its natural features and as a passive recreation and social gathering spot.

We have drafted a plan that provides clear direction for the protection and future development of Koolunga Native Reserve and welcome your feedback on the proposed activities.

Three objectives drive the plan to:

  • Protect the ecological biodiversity and habitat values of the land.

  • Better manage stormwater to improve water quality.

  • Continue to welcome the local community to enjoy the natural environment and improve their health and wellbeing.

The Plan proposes actions designed to help achieve the objectives.

Have Your Say

We welcome your feedback and ideas on our Have Your Say Page or come along to one of four drop in sessions being held  on:

  • Wednesday 17 May 5pm to 7pm

You can meet us at the open space at the north of the reserve at 36 Daffodil Road, Koolunga Native Reserve.

If the weather is poor, please check Have Your Say or call the project team to confirm the drop in sessions will proceed.
