Gardiners Creek (Kooyongkoot) Master Plan

The City of Boroondara invites all residents to Have your say on its draft Gardiners Creek (Kooyongkoot) Master Plan.  Gardiners Creek is over 30 km in length and originates in Blackburn.  It flows through the suburbs of Ashburton, Glen Iris, Hawthorn East and into the Yarra in Hawthorn.  The plan also covers Back Creek which flows into Gardiners Creek, connecting the suburbs of Camberwell and Canterbury.  At present, Gardiners Creek is the only significant creek to run into the Yarra River without an overall management plan. Boroondara has developed a master plan to cover that part of Gardiners Creek and Back Creek that flows through this region.

The draft Master Plan document can be downloaded from the Boroondara website at,

It includes aims and actions that apply across the entire area.”  Community consultation commenced on 24 May 2022 and will continue till 28 June 2022.
