Weed and Revegetation Strategy - Background Information

In early 2020 the Town of East Fremantle commissioned APACE WA to undertake a weed and revegetation strategy of our historic Niergarup Track with the aim of:

  • reducing urban heat
  • increasing biodiversity and wildlife
  • improving the amenity of the area, and
  • increasing pedestrian usage.

The Town plans to undertake revegetation planting works along Niergarup Track in May and June, which is the best time for planting.

Following the adoption of the strategy the Town has undertaken two rounds of weeding along the track, to eradicate any weeds which may exist along the track. One more round of weeding may be undertaken before the planting begins in May and June 2022, depending how early the Town can source the planting stock.
