The Murrumbidgee-Ginninderra Gorges National Park Community Group has decided to rename itself the Ginninderra Falls Association to simplify what many considered to be a cumbersome although descriptive name. However, this change does not diminish in any way the new Association's push for a new national park incorporating the falls and gorge on Ginninderra Creek and a section of the Murrumbidgee River.

The Murrumbidgee-Ginninderra Gorges National Park Community Group was delighted with the attendance at the public meeting on 31 October and with the high level of questions and discussion. We have met twice since then and are continuing to work towards our objective of a national park centred on Ginninderra Falls/Gorge and part of the Murrumbidgee River.
We wish to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land we are discussing, the Ngunnawal and Ngambri people. We wish to acknowledge and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region. We would also like to acknowledge and welcome other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who may visit this area.
