Acknowledgement of Country

We acknowledge their living connection to Country and culture, paying our respects to ancestors and to Elders past, present and emerging.
The KooyongKoot Alliance is comprised of over twenty Friends Groups working in the Gardiners Creek (KooyongKoot) catchment in Melbourne, Australia. Please click on the purple markers to find out more about a specific member group or project.
The Ecology of an area like the KooyongKoot catchment is the study of what organisms exist in it and how they interact with one another and their physical environment. One of KKA’s driving objectives is to help restore biodiversity throughout the KooyongKoot catchment.
KooyongKoot has been integral to the development of Melbourne virtually as soon as European settlement began and the city burgeoned eastwards. Of course, about 60,000 years of Aboriginal culture preceded that.
