About the parklands

We are expanding Cardinia Creek Parklands and linking existing parks and reserves. This will create 508 hectares of parkland for communities from Beaconsfield to Cardinia.

The new, larger parklands will help protect native plants and animals, including new conservation areas and strengthen cultural heritage.

Visitors will be able to enjoy extended walking trails and green, open spaces for healthy outdoor activities.

Where are the parklands?

The parklands sit within the traditional lands of the Bunurong People.  They will stretch from Beaconsfield to Cardinia, around 60 kilometres south east of Melbourne’s CBD.
