Lake Kununurra Foreshore And Aquatic Use Plan

The main focus of the Lake Kununurra Foreshore and Aquatic Use Plan is to address land use issues affecting foreshore reserves and associated areas on both sides of Lake Kununurra, from the Diversion Dam up to and including the Kununurra Racecourse, as well as Lily Creek Lagoon and the Packsaddle wetlands, the foreshore adjoining the Crossing Falls residential area, the Packsaddle/Jabiru Road agricultural area and the commercial canoe camps and tour boat day use areas.

An Aquatic Use Plan has also been incorporated into the document to show synergies between land and water use and to ensure that these uses complement one another. The Aquatic Use Plan focuses on those activities that occur on the waterway.

These foreshore reserves and associated areas included in the plan are owned or managed by a variety of government agencies including the Shire of Wyndham East Kimberley, the Department of Water, Water Corporation, the Department for Regional Development and Lands, the Miriuwung Gajerrong Corporation and the Department for Environment and Conservation.

The original 2006 Foreshore Plan was reviewed and updated by Council in 2011. A Lake Kununurra Foreshore Reference Committee is charged with overseeing the implementation of the plan.
