Namarag is coming

Namarag Molonglo Special Purpose Reserve lies south of Whitlam on the Molonglo River and is now under construction.

Namarag Molonglo Special Purpose Reserve construction works have closed the Butters Bridge at its north end. Bridge access is possible from the south end (Denman Prospect) just for the view.

Namarag video is old but interesting. The area was previously called the “Molonglo Nature Space”

“The park has been given the name Namarag, the Ngunnawal word meaning wattle. The name ties into the strong focus on celebrating Ngunnawal people as the traditional custodians of the area and their continued connection to this site.”
