Vegetation managed for Cannon Hill view

News Article Date: 
Monday, 3 June 2019

Several species of low-growing native shrubs, including the endemic Granny’s Grave correa, will be planted on Cannon Hill to replace a small copse of Casuarina trees.

The strategic vegetation management project is aimed at restoring the view across Lake Pertobe from Cannon Hill.

“We have had feedback from the community telling us that they would like to have the view of Lake Pertobe from Cannon Hill reinstated,” Warrnambool Mayor Tony Herbert said.

“This project will help ensure Cannon Hill continues to be the popular lookout point enjoyed by residents and by visitors to the city.

“Over recent years there have been ongoing native plantings on Cannon Hill and we have also removed a number of cypress trees to help maintain the view and to tip the balance towards native plants being the dominant vegetation type in the area.

“Council also operates a pest animal control program that tackles rabbits on Cannon Hill and elsewhere around the city.”

The clearing and replanting is expected to take place in late June.
