Woorabinda Bushland Reserves, in the Adelaide Hills, is a natural reserve close to the centre of Stirling in South Australia. The Park contains large areas of natural bushland providing significant conservation and biodiversity value to the Adelaide Hills.
The Friends of Woorabinda Bushland Reserves are delighted to announce that a Natural Heritage Agreement covering all four reserves has been approved by the State Government.
The Agreement protects the biodiversity and the natural character of the flora and fauna in these reserves in perpetuity. The bushland reserves are important in their own right as well as providing a vital wildlife corridor between existing Conservation Parks.
On Wednesday 22 May 2019, the Agreement was celebrated by many people meeting at the Woorabinda Environment Centre. They included the Minister for Environment and Water, the Hon David Speirs; local Member of Parliament Josh Teague; Adelaide Hills Council Mayor Jan-Claire Wisdom and CEO Andrew Aitken; Woorabinda Patron Prof Chris Daniels; Emily Jenke Presiding Member of the Native Vegetation Council; as well as Ministerial, Departmental and AHC staff, several journalists and several members of Friends of Woorabinda Bushland Reserves.
A newsletter has been published which covers this great occasion, and also provides information about what the Heritage Agreement means to the Reserves. Read about it here: 63_FOWBRnews201905.
We have also produced a heritage poster with pictures of the reserves to celebrate this achievement.
