Partial temporary closure of Centenary Park, Clermont

Isaac Regional Council advises that Centenary Park will be partially closed from:

Tuesday, October 9
Until further notice

Part of the park is surrounded by temporary fencing to isolate a roost of up to 4,000 little red flying foxes that have recently arrived.

The roost is away from residential backyards, in the trees on the south bank of Hoods Lagoon (corner of Capella and Lime streets).

Council will continue to monitor the flying fox roost and will provide the community with updates once a course of action is established.

Earlier this year Council trimmed some trees in the park to try and discourage flying foxes from roosting in the area. We are currently reviewing whether this has had any effect on the current flying fox colony.

We are also seeking feedback to help develop a Statement of Management Intent for managing flying foxes.

The Clermont community is invited to drop in and provide feedback at the info share session on Friday 12 October, 9.30am to 12.30pm at the Old Library or fill out the online survey.

If you require further information please contact Council’s Customer Service Centre available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on 1300 ISAACS (1300 472 227).
