Check if you're eligible for our Nature Conservation Assistance Program

Did you know that we provide grant funding to landholders with properties of high conservation value? The Nature Conservation Assistance Program (NCAP) helps establish bushland restoration projects to improve the native habitat on properties and contribute to the enhancement of biodiversity. NCAP includes activities such as:

  • environmental weed control and bush regeneration
  • planting of local native plants to restore areas that won't naturally regenerate
  • establish vegetation corridors
  • rehabilitate the banks of natural waterways. 

Our Nature Conservation Assistance Program is just one of the landholder support programs we offer. To find out if your property is eligible, visit our website.

Staying safe on our pathways

Staying safe on our pathways

We all have a part to play in keeping each other safe on our shared pathways. Whether you're exploring our city on foot or on wheels, it's important to keep our pathways safe for all to use.

Remember to always be courteous, keep to the left, stay alert and...

If you're on foot:

  • don't stand still and block the path
  • keep your dog on a leash
  • be aware of people behind you, especially if you have to stop.

If you're on wheels:

  • give way to pedestrians
  • travel at a safe speed
  • keep a safe distance from others
  • when riding, always wear a helmet.

With more than 50 kilometres of cycle and walkways along our foreshores, explore our coastal wonderland by foot or bike today.
