Restoration of the Kent Street Sandpit

In May 2022, the Town of Victoria Park agreed to aim for a best practice restoration of the Kent Street Sandpit. The project will

  • create a best practice restoration effort with a focus on: (a) ecological restoration of the banksia woodland and development of the understorey; (b) Noongar cultural restoration and considerations
  • seek further input from Professor Kingsley Dixon and/or Curtin University, the Mindeera Aboriginal Advisory Group and the Friends of Jirdarup Bushland into the draft design ….

Working with Council on this redevelopment will be a major focus for the Friends in the coming years.

Check out the concept design …
