Nungurner Community Landcare Group
Nungurner Community Landcare Group was formed in 2009 and has a membership of around 30 families. The group aims to promote sustainable land management within our community and focuses on the area bordered by the Princes Highway, Kalimna West and the Gippsland Lakes.
One of the Group's major projects is to reduce weeds and protect native vegetation including local orchids in the Nungurner Jetty Rd roadside reserve. Regular working bees are held at the roadside reserve. Other activities that members are involved in include weed control and re-vegetation on private and public land.
The group also arranges guest speakers and activities on topics that are of interest to many local people. Recent activities have been bird and frog identification, a permaculture garden walk, a night spotlight tour of the wildlife of Nungurner and a demonstration of propagating techniques.
Typical calendar activities include pest management, a walk and talk sessions on plants in the roadside reserve and guest speakers on the Lakes health and local birds. The whole community is invited to these activities. Keep an eye on the local noticeboards and Nungurner newsletter for details.

Nungurner Community & Coast Action Group
The Community Group is a forum open to all Nungurner residents and people interested in the area. Our Constitution states that the Group exists:
“To provide a united community voice on items of concern to residents and ratepayers of Nungurner, to undertake community projects, and to address local environmental issues.”
We encourage involvement of all local interest groups and are involved in running public meetings with guest speakers, and liaising with Government bodies including Gippsland Ports, DSE and Shire Council in planning.
We respond to issues put forward by individual residents and members, and act in the interests of the broader local community.
We distribute a local Newsletter and use this along with email communication methods to keep people up-to-date with local happenings and concerns, Nungurner Primary School events, messages from our local CFA unit, calendar events, and to pass on important Shire messages.
NCCAG also runs community interest events; Community Garage sales involving numerous households on Easter Saturdays, and Pre-Christmas BBQs run in conjunction with the CFA are popular family events.
It also supports local participation in public events and charity appeals.
We welcome newcomers to our area and actively help them settle in to the local mode of living involving water tanks, collecting firewood, and accessing local services.
We welcome new members – all you need is an interest in our region!
