Council manages over 9500 hectares of natural areas for conservation, protection of biodiversity, nature based activities and for visitors to access and use. View the track maps, and enjoy the many bush walking tracks, mountain bike trails, horse riding multi-use trails, picnic areas and playgrounds. You can also tour natural habitat areas and discover our many different native animal and plant species.
