kanamaluka / Tamar Estuary

A draft vision for the future

We believe that the kanamaluka/Tamar Estuary has the potential to be an inspiring destination that:

  • Brings people to the water’s edge
  • Connects key areas of the city and region
  • Creates new cultural and recreational precincts
  • Educates users and visitors about the environmental importance of the estuary, and
  • Enhances opportunities for businesses and tourism.

For more than 130 years, the state of the estuary has been a matter of contention. The Taskforce has created this draft vision to coordinate the management and development of the estuary to make it more attractive and accessible for the community, while enhancing and celebrating its internationally recognised environmental values.

With significant work already underway to improve the health of the estuary, we are now focusing on opportunities to improve peoples’ experience of the kanamaluka/Tamar Estuary. The key priorities to achieve the vision are creating a cultural and recreational precinct and managing sediment by promoting long-term sustainable management.
