Beaufort Linear Master Plan

Pyrenees Shire Council is preparing a Master Plan for the Beaufort Linear Park in the second half of 2023.

The Beaufort Linear Park project aims to create a recreational corridor along the course of the Garibaldi Creek from Beaufort Lake at the southernmost point to the area where the creek intersects with Yam Holes Creek north of the railway line in Beaufort.

The master plan for the linear park is being created to enhance:

  • Water quality and biodiversity along the Garibaldi Creek;
  • Community health and wellbeing;
  • The experience for visitors to Beaufort.

Pyrenees Shire Council is engaging with Wadawurrung Traditional Owners Aboriginal Corporation, DEECA, Glenelg Hopkins CMA, adjacent landholders, members of the community and other key stakeholders to co-design the future of the Beaufort Linear Park and help shape the values, vision, and ideas for the future of the site.
