Spring Management Advisory Committee

In August 1998, the Shire hosted a public meeting to discuss the question of reconciliation between aboriginal and non-aboriginal people in the district. The meeting was facilitated by Fred Collard and Tim Muirhead from Perth. Over the ensuing months the Kojonup Springs Agreement was developed and officially signed on 18 September 1999 and is displayed in the foyer of the Council Office.

“The Springs” as stated in the Agreement has special spiritual and cultural significance to both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people of the district of Kojonup. Visual inspection of the area excluding the Barrack’s and Old Post Office indicates that other than mowing there has not been any significant works undertaken in recent years.
