The Chapman River Estuary Draft Action Plan is Complete!

A very big thank you to everyone who attended the workshops or provided input and feedback in other ways throughout the engagement process. We really appreciate your time and inside scoop on protecting the area.

The Chapman River Estuary, part of the Chapman River Regional Park, is a very popular recreation spot with people walking and cycling along the river trail, bird watching, picnicking and fishing off the riverbanks. It is also a place of cultural significance to many Aboriginal people and is the site of a federally listed Threatened Ecological Community. It is also home to migratory shore birds, turtles, and other wildlife whose habitat needs to be maintained and protected. To ensure this unique place of considerable environmental and cultural significance is safeguarded for future generations, the City of Greater Geraldton engaged NACC NRM’s Coastal and Marine team to develop a community informed Action Plan. 

The City of Greater Geraldton are now reviewing all public comments on the draft report and are in the process of completing the final Action Plan.

This project is supported by funding from the Western Australian Government’s State NRM Program.
