Sustainable Onkaparinga

We are lucky enough to live in a beautiful part of the world admired by residents and visitors alike.  The landscapes and vistas of the Willunga Ranges, the Onkaparinga estuary and our stunning coastline help to define our identity and our sense of arriving in the ‘south’.  Together, we shape our environment through the management and care of our natural resources and the design and use of our urban neighbourhoods and open spaces.

Key environmental programs, activities and initiatives are happening around the City as part of our commitment to being a Sustainable Onkaparinga.   These include the Urban Creek Recovery project that restores habitat for native plants and wildlife, nature play events that encourage families to have fun outdoors and in new, innovative play spaces, and the initiative to green the City’s buildings with the latest technology. 

The Environment Strategy 2014-19 outlines how we can work together to support and protect our local ecosystems so that they can thrive and be enjoyed by those who live in and visit our region.
