Lloyd Conservation Area Naming Proposal

This consultation has concluded. Feedback received will be included in a future report to Council and notified on this page.



In 2010, Wagga Wagga City Council acquired via a Voluntary Planning Agreement an area of 128ha comprising high quality native vegetation of Endangered White Box Woodland. The area incorporates a section of the Wiradjuri Walking Track between the Olympic Highway and Holbrook Road, and is zoned as Environmental Conservation (E2) land. Council is seeking public input to the choice of a name for this Environmental Conservation area that identifies with its location and environmental purposes.

In keeping with the purpose of the name and its historical context, Council has consulted with the Marra Marra Committee and identified three Wiradjuri names suitable for the area.


Niyambaa - squirrel glider

Birri - White Box

Birramal - the bush


Community input into the proposed names is sought and results will be included in a report to a future Council Meeting for consideration.

Once endorsed by Council the preferred choice will be officially registered on maps and documents relating to the area.

Cast your vote before 5pm on 18 August 2014 when the opportunity closes.

    Niyambaa - squirrel glider

    This Environmental Conservation area is a known habitat of Squirrel Gliders which are part of the listed Endangered Population in the Wagga Wagga Local Government Area.  Squirrel Gliders are small grey native marsupials about 200mm long with a thick bushy tail nearly 300mm long.  Like other gliders, Squirrel Gliders have a gliding membrane which extends from the front legs to the back legs and they can glide up to 80m.

    Birri - White Box

    Since European settlement the area of white box woodland has been greatly reduced state-wide and only about 2% of the original woodland remains.  The remaining White Box vegetation is classed as Endangered and this area in Lloyd will enhance the conservation of the vegetation community.

    Birramal - the bush

    The bush was important to the Wiradjuri Aborigines. The timber was used for fires, tools, weapons and the bark was used shelter and containers.  Plants comprised about 80% of the Australian traditional diet.  These plant foods were about 28% fruit, 30% seed and 42% roots.
