This strategic plan has been developed to guide the direction of the Gardens over the next 10 years and encourages further research and conservation, education, recreational use and development of the Gardens. In providing this direction, Council is demonstrating our commitment to maintaining and improving the Gardens to ensure they are valued and recognised throughout Australia by the community and visitors to our region.
The strategy has been informed through previous reports, the direction of botanic gardens elsewhere and consultation with stakeholders including our valued staff and volunteers. The strategy will be implemented through a business plan and will be funded by Council’s budget.
Gladstone Regional Council adopted the 10 year strategic plan in December 2015. A full version and summary version of this document is available for your information.
