Chandlers Hill Parkcare
The Chandlers Hill Parkcare Group
The Chandlers Hill Parkcare Group is group of dedicated individuals who are interested in caring for the environment around Chandlers Hill, which is in the southern part of the greater Dandenong Ranges National Park.
In 1990 Gordon Carter and Bruce Thompson, two Boronia residents were concerned about the unchecked weed proliferation on Chandlers Hill, approached Parks Victoria and as a result the Chandlers Hill Parkcare Group was formed.
With the help of Parks Victoria, the group has been working hard for over 25 years and their efforts show in the beautiful landscape that you can see and enjoy today!
