Publication, Plan of management, Final
The area will be managed to protect its cultural significance and provide opportunities
for educational and appropriate recreational use. Interpretive signs and picnicking
facilities have been provided.
Progressive planting of native tree and shrub species is being carried out to establish a
vegetation cover over the site similiar to that which existed when the area was used for
hunting and food gathering by Aboriginal people.
The local Aboriginal community will be actively actively encouraged to become involved
in management of the area.
