About the parkland

Quarry Hills Parkland will expand to create approximately 1,100 hectares of green open space for communities in and around Mernda, Wollert, Epping and South Morang. Creating the new, larger parkland will help protect native plants and animals and strengthen cultural heritage.

Visitors will be able to experience new walking and cycling trails, connect with nature and enjoy healthy outdoor activities.

Where will the parkland be located?

The parkland is located within the traditional lands of the Woi-wurrung People. They will stretch from Mernda to South Morang, around 30 kilometres north east of Melbourne’s CBD.
