Marrickville Golf Course and Dibble Avenue Waterhole

Areas covered by the plans - click on image to view in more detail


Background

Marrickville Golf Course is a 20 hectare area of land which is predominantly owned by Council. The land is leased to the Golf Club under the proviso that it provides public access to the open spaces. The club has depended on irrigation water from Dibble Avenue Waterhole since the 1940s and continues to do so under existing rights.

Dibble Avenue Waterhole is a locally listed Heritage Item and Priority Biodiversity Site as it provides refuge for aquatic plants and animals. Following the collapse of the banks at the north-east side of the waterhole in February 2017, Council made emergency repairs and is working on a separate remediation plan to make the banks safe and stable.


Developing the Plan of Management and Master Plans

The development of the plans provides opportunities to introduce best practice sustainable land and environmental management for both sites.

The process will look at

  • ways to improve safe public access to the golf course
  • ways to increase everyone’s enjoyment of the spaces
  • alternative water sources for the golf course
  • acceptable limits on water extraction into the future


Provide your input into the development of plans

Drop in to an onsite session:

  • Marrickville Golf Club Carpark on Saturday, 2 June 2018 from 1pm-3pm

  • Mahoney Reserve, beside the Amenities Block on Saturday, 16 June 2018 from 1pm-3pm
