The KooyongKoot Alliance sprung into life in the depths of the 2020 Covid-19 winter. It started as a Zoom meeting with Friends Groups from the Gardiners Creek (KooyongKoot) catchment,  leaders from other Yarra River tributary catchments and your Yarra Riverkeeper. It ended with a common bond to work together for the betterment of the KooyongKoot. 

We are now 17 Friends Groups strong and  have formed a strategic alliance with the Yarra Riverkeeper Association, to collectively act as a voice for the Creek. 

By working together, the Alliance has a strong, independent and influential voice.

The Vision

To shed light on the importance of Gardiners Creek (KooyongKoot) as a significant tributary of the Yarra River. 

To work with the major stakeholders to create a shared vision and develop a plan to implement that vision.

We will inject a sense of urgency into achieving this goal.

The Aim

To act as a catalyst in the development of the management plan, beginning from  KooyongKoot’s source, and to help bridge boundaries and break down barriers. We are many working together for a common good, 17 geographically separate entities coming together for a joint purpose. 

We aim to overcome the current lack of holistic strategic planning to manage the Creek. We aim to resolve it quickly and positively for the benefit of all.
