Description

We acknowledge this land that we meet on today is the traditional lands for the Kaurna people and that we respect their spiritual relationship with their country.

We also acknowledge the Kaurna people as the custodians of the Adelaide region and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still as important to the living Kaurna people today.

We also pay respects to the cultural authority of Aboriginal people visiting/attending from other areas of South Australia/Australia.

Brownhill Creek Recreation Park / Wirraparinga is a beautiful and historic park within 10km of Adelaide’s CBD, soon to be part of a tourism and heritage precinct which will incorporate Carrick Hill as the tourism hub, the University of Adelaide Waite Campus, historic Mitcham Village, Brownhill Creek Recreation Park, Brownhill Creek Tourist Park and SP Estate.

Brownhill Creek Association Incorporated (BCA) is partnering with the Kaurna Nation Cultural Heritage Association (Traditional Owners), The Friends of Brownhill Creek, Mitcham Historical Society, the Rotary Club of Brownhill Creek, Mitcham Lions Club, the SA Department for Environment and Water (DEW), NRM Education and Support Officers, Carrick Hill Trust, the owners of SP Estate, the University of Adelaide Waite Campus, the City of Mitcham, local schools / Urrbrae TAFE represented on BCA’s Education and Revegetation Committee, Conservation Volunteers Australia (CVA), Walking SA, the National Trust of South Australia, Conservation Council SA, local businesses and the wider community. The Minister for Environment, David Speirs MP, Sam Duluk MP (State Member for Waite) and Nicolle Flint MP (Federal Member for Boothby), have secured funding and provided essential support and encouragement for our joint community projects. BCA and our partners are working together to make this tourism and heritage precinct a reality through the Connecting Communities: Wirraparinga Loop Trail Project.

This project will provide benefits for recreation, health and wellbeing, education and heritage, native revegetation and habitat restoration for endangered species and provide an important economic boost for our economy through tourism.

BCA uses the environment and heritage in this area as a focus to unite our partner groups and the wider community.

The Wirraparinga Loop Trail Agreement has recently been signed by Carrick Hill Trust, SP Estate, the Department for Environment, the City of Mitcham and BCA.
