The Kalgulup Regional Park Draft Management Plan 2020 has been released for public comment.
DBCA has undertaken consultation with representatives from the Gnaala Karla Booja Native Title Working Group who have identified Kalgulup Regional Park as a name for the park, with ‘kalgulup’ meaning ‘place of fire’ or ‘place of burning campfires’ in Noongar language.
The plan provides guidance for the management of 295 reserves and parcels of land located north and east of Bunbury along the foreshores of the Leschenault Estuary and Inlet and the Preston, Collie and Brunswick rivers, including the Leschenault Peninsula Conservation Park, and south of Bunbury from Preston River to the Ocean. The 3,100 hectare proposed regional park consists of lands managed by a range of land managers including state government agencies (DBCA, Department of Communities, Department of Water and Environmental Regulation, Water Corporation and Western Australian Planning Commission), local governments (City of Bunbury and the Shires of Capel, Dardanup and Harvey) and private landholders.
You are invited to have your say on how the regional park will be managed into the future.

Hard copies of the Plan may be viewed at the Shire of Harvey Administration Offices of Australind and Harvey. Submissions close on 15 October 2020.
