Dja Dja Wurrung Appointed Land Joint Management Plans
The Dhelkunya Dja Land Management Board invites all Dja Dja Wurrung People to contribute to how best to manage the six parks that make up the Appointed Land held as Aboriginal Title. These parks are the Greater Bendigo National Park; Hepburn Regional Park; Paddys Ranges State Forest; Kara Kara National Park; Kooyoora State Park and Wehla Nature Conservation Reserve.
From May 2017 through to August 2018, there will be a number of Focus Group meetings and gatherings where we will be listening to your experiences, connections to the parks, ideas, hopes and concerns. Some of these gatherings will be trips onto country to visit some of the parks. The Focus Groups will support Dja Dja Wurrung People to have input to the Joint Management Plan (JMP). The Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation (DDWCAC) will consider and decide on any Dja Dja Wurrung information to be included in the JMP.
To help with understanding the process we have provided a link to a flow chart explaining how the development of the Joint Management Plan will progress.
