About the parklands

We are expanding Quarry Hills Park to create 1,088 hectares of green open space for communities in and around Mernda, Wollert, Epping and South Morang. Creating the new, larger parklands will help protect native plants and animals and strengthen cultural heritage.

Visitors will be able to experience new walking and cycling trails, connect with nature and enjoy healthy outdoor activities.

Where will the parklands be located?

The parklands sit within the traditional lands of the Woiwurrung People.  They will stretch from Mernda to South Morang, around 30 kilometres north east of Melbourne’s CBD.
