Maroochy Bushland Botanic Gardens Master Plan

The Maroochy Regional Bushland Botanic Garden is now 20 years old, so council is calling for the community’s input as we review the master plan.

Purpose

A master plan guides future development of the Maroochy Botanic Gardens. It is based on a clear vision for the garden, and then maps how that vision is translated on the ground.

The first master plan for the garden was developed 20 years ago and a lot has been achieved.

Council is in the process of reviewing the plan to ensure the gardens continue to flourish as an important resource for the community.
