New plan for park in action

THE state government has released a plan that will see the creation and management of the Kalgulup Regional Park in the greater Bunbury region.

Spanning 3,100 hectares, the park was created in October 2020 and covers areas from the Leschenault Peninsula to the lower reaches of the Collie, Brunswick and Preston Rivers.

Following extensive community consultation, the management plan has been designed to have a strong focus on the park's high biodiversity, cultural and community values, as part of a $10.5 million investment over the next four years.

The plan also identifies opportunities for further enhancement of recreation sites and experiences within the park.
