About the parklands

We are creating more than 1,000 hectares of new parkland on Woiwurrung Country along Jacksons Creek in Sunbury. It will provide local communities and visitors with a rich connection to nature and cultural heritage.

Trails and open spaces will promote healthy outdoor activities.

Where will the parklands be located?

The parkland sits within the traditional lands of the Woiwurrung People along Jackson's Creek in Sunbury.

When can I visit the parklands?

You can visit some parts of the parklands now. Jacksons Creek Regional Parklands is a complex project requiring extensive planning and consultation. The park will be opened in stages, depending on planning progress.
