Parks and Reserves in Tuross Head

Eurobodalla Shire Council has care and control of 336 ha. of reserves in Tuross Head.

For more specific information on Kyla Park and Grazing Lands click here

The Reserves in Tuross head can either be Community,
Crown owned or Operational.

Council has clearly defined those which it maintains and has a cycle of maintenance that ensures those Reserves which are maintained are done so at a manageable and affordable frequency.

Note: There are Community Lands and Pathways around Tuross that are not well known or utilized – nearby residents sometimes try to hide them to discourage their use.

This map might help you to know your Public Reserves a little more - if there are any specific questions regarding reserves, pathways and property boundaries please enquire of Council

In the meantime if you wish to know what land is Public Reserve then ring one of the Council Engineering admin staff at either the Main Office (44741000) or at a Depot (44741319) as these staff have immediate access to the Councils GIS maps and can advise you over the phone as to who owns the reserve and whether it is maintained or not.

Should you have a reserve nearby that is not maintained and you feel it should be better managed contact Council to determine if it is in fact a reserve under their control and if it is... then request an inspection.
