Greenways Master Plan

The Bywong/Wamboin s 355 Greenways Committee has drafted a major update to the Greenways Master Plan and would now like to get feedback from the community. The results of this will be included in the Plan (or possibly change parts of the Plan) before it is sent to Council for review.

The draft Greenways Master Plan can be downloaded from the Facilities > Greenways page or simply by clicking here.

The final Master Plan needs to be presented to and adopted by Council before it prepares its 2024-25 budget, so feedback is needed by the end of February. Please send your feedback to Kathy Handel by email at khandel@bigpond.net.au.

The Master Plan will be on the agenda of both the Wamboin and Bywong Community Associations at their next meetings: 15 February for Bywong Community Association and 20 February for Wamboin Community Association. You are encouraged to come to one of these meetings and participate in discussing the Master Plan.

Deputy Chair, Bywong/Wamboin s 355 Greenways Committee


New Residents' Guide now available!

The Wamboin Community Association (WCA) has published a New Residents’ Guide that is available free to all new (less than 2 years) residents of Wamboin.

The Guide is intended to:

  • create a “meet & greet” opportunity for residents to introduce themselves and the Wamboin community to their newly arrived neighbours
  • inform new residents of social, community, sporting and other groups and organisations that operate in the area
  • facilitate and encourage new residents to join the Wamboin Community Association, and
  • pass on useful hints about rural living.

If you have new neighbours and you'd like to give them a copy, or if you're new to the area and don't yet have a copy, you can pick one up at the WCA stall at the monthly Home Produce Markets, download the on-line version, or email the WCA Secretary (secretary@wamboincommunity.asn.au) to arrange your copy.
