Key Considerations for the Reserve

The reserve is not declared to be ‘Critical Habitat’ or land directly affected by a Recovery Plan. However, the following may be present as noted below. Presence of Threatened Fauna Green and golden bell frog.

At its meeting of 22 May 2019 Council’s Aboriginal Reference Group identified this reserve as important and for Council to continue to talk with the Aboriginal community about this land. Also in the reserve is the Headquarters for the Marine rescue operations by the Coastguard.

Council endorsed a masterplan for Hill 60 and is currently preparing an Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Assessment Report and revised Conservation Management Plan for the site to support the relevant approvals required to implement the Hill 60 Masterplan.
