Ginninderra is a Ngunawal word for “sparkling water”
The Ginninderra Creek, which flows from Mulligan’s Flat to the Murrumbidgee, was an

learn more about Aboriginal Heritage in the Ginninderra area.

The GER Landcare Program will only fund connectivity conservation projects in the NSW section of the GER corridor which contribute to the key GER objective:
Connect Landscapes and ecosystems - Improve the connectivity, condition and resilience of landscapes and ecosystems and halt further decline and loss of species
