What is the aim of developing a Masterplan for Myuna Farm?

    The Myuna Farm Masterplan aims to provide a clear and concise strategic direction for the ongoing, long term, sustainable development of this unique, community facility.

    The continued growth in popularity identified in the rapidly growing attendance numbers presents challenges that have required a comprehensive investigation into the current operating practices, provision of services, infrastructure usage, visitation numbers and fluctuations, management model, financial viability and sources of capital funding, relevant to the development of the Myuna Farm Masterplan.

    What is included in a Masterplan?

    The Masterplan has identified future opportunities that will allow the farm to continue to grow whilst still retaining the essential attributes and elements which make Myuna Farm such a positive and successful community icon.

    This Masterplan will:

    • Ensure that Myuna Farm is well utilised in the short and long term.

    • Design developments that will provide improved accessibility to a wide cross-section of the community.

    • Enable Myuna Farm to continue to facilitate learning about environmental sustainability and agricultural through education programs.

    • Enable Myuna Farm to continue to offer hands on experiences to a wide range of user groups.

    • Maintain and improve animal husbandry procedures, animal handling and living conditions of animals kept at Myuna Farm.

    • Enhance the user experience through improved aesthetics and functionality of the layout and building design which will subsequently drive attendance

    How will the Masterplan be implemented?

    This community consultation phase values the input received, the feedback forms a vital component that supports and guides council in adopting the Myuna Farm Masterplan.

    The Masterplan implementation outlines an approach that will accommodate current visitation and prepare for growing numbers in the future. The plan appropriately addresses the inherent risks and problems that arise from rapid growth; including improving the flow of visitors through the site; making the site easier to navigate, the dispersion of crowds, accommodate parking requirements. The Masterplan will guide council to implement the development stages over 5 years and beyond.
