Marrambidya Wetland: take the survey

Council is asking for community feedback on potential improvements and development at Marrambidya Wetland, the 20-hectare reserve located minutes from our city centre.

Situated beside the Murrumbidgee River and linking up with the Wiradjuri Trail, the wetland is a popular destination for runners, dog walkers, cyclists, nature lovers and visitors to our region.

The wetland is also culturally significant, acting as a meeting place for local First Nations peoples.

Environmental Management Team Leader Tony Phelps said since Council created the wetland in 2016, the area’s vegetation and birdlife had increased dramatically.

“Marrambidya Wetland is an important natural asset and unique in that it’s a diverse ecosystem just a few minutes from the main street,” Mr Phelps said.

“It’s a place where our community can go to get in touch with nature, take a walk, see the birds, hear the frog calls, and come home feeling refreshed.

“We see so many people using the wetland and enjoying what we’ve created – and we want to improve it for future generations.

“We’re asking if everyone would take a few minutes to complete the survey and let us know their ideas on how they would like to see the wetland improved.”

Results from the Marrambidya Wetland Master Plan Community Survey will help the team draft a 10-year master plan for the wetland. The draft Marrambidya Wetland Master Plan will be presented to Council with a view to proceed to public exhibition in May 2022.
