KHA and ACT Parks have reinvigorated our relationship through a freshly minted Memorandum of Understanding which will help KHA continue its work supporting ACT Parks conserve our high country heritage in the Australian Capital Territory.
The first major workparty was the refurbishment of Orroral Homestead, a large undertaking coordinated by ex KHA President Bob Moon. Bob previously coordinated the major conservation works for Tralee Homestead at Hume and that experience helped both KHA and ACT Parks forge a new partnership.
