From golf course to nature reserve: Elsternwick Nature Reserve
The transformation of former Elsternwick Golf course into a flourishing parkland and nature reserve is the realisation of a shared vision driven by Bayside City Council, local community organisations, and other key stakeholders.
Elsternwick Nature Reserve Masterplan unites landscape, recreational parklands, nature-based solutions, and Water Sensitive Urban Design, benchmarking achievements in regional water management, ecological resilience, and public amenity through a functional yet elegant design.
Aside from positive environmental contribution, the design story fosters extensive community engagement. Embodying a 'Caring for Country' philosophy through collaboration with Traditional Owners, the masterplan creates meaningful, positive societal contributions that extend beyond site boundaries.
