Gardiners Creek (KooyongKoot) Masterplan

Gardiners Creek (Kooyongkoot) is a significant waterway within Stonnington that provides an important wildlife corridor within an increasingly urban environment as well as highly valued open space, recreation hubs, Indigenous heritage, public transport links and the Malvern Valley Golf Course.

Within Stonnington, Gardiners Creek (Kooyongkoot) extends for approximately 8.7km from its junction with the Yarra River in Kooyong through to Warrigal Road, Glen Iris.

Our vision for Gardiners Creek (Kooyongkoot) is:

“The Gardiners Creek corridor will be a resilient environmental landscape nurturing the wellness of people and Country. As a loved community destination, it will form a vital link through the municipality, offering green respite from the urban surrounds with rich biodiversity and habitat.”

Following community consultation last year, we’ve developed a draft masterplan to help us achieve this vision and regenerate Gardiners Creek (Kooyongkoot) and surrounding area through extensive revegetation and biodiversity works, water sensitive urban design, shared path upgrades and improvements to enhance passive and active recreation.

To make the masterplan clear and manageable, it has been divided into nine zones, these zones will also make it easier to give and collect feedback.

Click on each zone to view details, these are also included within the survey.
