Clontarf Hill should be Retained as
Local Open Space!
The Environmental Protection Authority regards Clontarf Hill as an important natural remnant in the social surroundings of the area.
Although it seems unlikely that stage 9 of the Roe Highway (Perth Freight Link) will go through the hill at this time, the future of the area is still uncertain. The good news is that the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage has now listed Clontarf Hill as a Registered Aboriginal Site.
Friends of Clontarf Hill in partnership with the Cockburn Community Wildlife Corridor and the City of Fremantle have been successful in gaining a Community Stewardship Grant 2021 from the State Natural Resource Management Program. This has provided us with resources to address woody weeds and undertake some revegetation. The South East Regional Centre for Urban Landcare will be working with us for the next 3 years to complete this project. Friends of Clontarf Hill (FOCH) are vigilant in looking after the area and demanding that Clontarf Hill and the surrounding bushland area be retained as local open space (as proposed by the City of Fremantle).
