Murrumbidgee - Ginninderra Gorges National Park: Information Note 20

Hi All

The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) has issued a preliminary assessment on the potential acquisition of three parcels of land in the vicinity of the Murrumbidgee River corridor and Ginninderra Creek confluence. A summary of this report is now on our website - Summary of property assessment conducted by National Parks and Wildlife Service at Ginninderra Falls  - and I have included a copy of the text below.

On the WIN News 20 November 2013, Dr Chris Watson stressed this area in NSW is of such outstanding value to present and future regional communities that it must remain a proscribed area of rural land. He restated the need for a cross-border working group to be formed to work out all the necessary details. As noted in the NSW Government report:

The Ginninderra Falls AOI [Area of Interest] contains significant scenic as well as natural and heritage values. The AOI has a range of recreational opportunities for the increasing population of the ACT and Yass Valley Council areas. Establishment of any reserve would require significant commitment from the NSW, ACT and local governments, the community and potentially private enterprise.

Don’t forget our 2013 Christmas Gathering at Strathnairn Arts Centre and Shepherds Lookout on Sunday 1 December 2013.
