In order to preserve it for generations to come, Ginninderry has established a conservation corridor that currently manages 242-hectares – growing to 596-hectares over time – of environmentally and culturally significant land along the Murrumbidgee River, Ginninderra Creek and Ginninderra Falls. To manage this land, an environmental trust made up of representatives from the community has also been established.
The Ginninderry Conservation Corridor
This newly established Conservation area spans the border of the ACT and NSW along the Murrumbidgee River and Ginninderra Creek; and is an integral part of sustainable living at Ginninderry. It incorporates more than 596 hectares of scenic landscape made up of open woodland, native grasslands a flowing river and waterfalls, and is home to an abundant range of flora and fauna including some endangered species.
The Ginninderry Conservation Trust
Consisting of representatives from the community and overseen by a Board, The Trust will manage the land in the corridor. This includes protecting and restoring ecosystems and habitats, maintaining the rich Aboriginal and European cultural heritage and ensuring that the land is left in better health for future generations.
