Garguree Swampcare – NSW
With the recognition of The Gully as an Aboriginal Place in 2002, a joint management initiative began between The Gully Traditional Owners and the Blue Mountains City Council. In 2012, Garguree Swampcare was born. From the inception of the group to the present day, a holistic approach has been adopted with the aim of repairing a highly damaged and degraded swamp system surrounded by an ever-growing urbanised setting in a major catchment in a world heritage setting. In doing so, the group has not just healed Country, but forged significant links with local and environmental partners, as well as the local populace.
