Completed surveys were collected during February- March 2017 (the survey closed April 3rd) . A community workshop was held in May 2017.

The Botanic Gardens Master Plan is being developed in partnership with the community and will outline the vision for the next 5 years. These are exciting times for the Gardens.

The online surveys were available at libraries, Council offices and at the Botanic Gardens at Lake MacDonald.

    Thank you Noosa for your contribution to the consultation on The Botanic Gardens Masterplan. Over 147 surveys were completed and numerous interviews with key stakeholders have been undertaken to gather information about what the Noosa community want to see in a Botanic Gardens Masterplan.

    A workshop of key stakeholders was held in May and Council thanks attendees for their valuable input. Work will commence on the draft vision statement component of the Masterplan, once all the results of the consultation have been fully analysed.
