Koonwarra welcomes you!
Koonwarra is a contemporary rural village actively demonstrating sustainable living. We were the first "Waste Wise Village" in Australia. Our residents, businesses, community groups and local government work together to strengthen our region and preserve our valuable natural resources.
We invite you to visit our town, enjoy its beautiful surroundings and experience its abundance and vision.
In 2005 the majority of Koonwarra Community Groups and Businesses committed to become waste wise. This sustainable initiative, in partnership with Gippsland Regional Waste Management Group established Koonwarra as the first Waste Wise Village in Australia and ensures the responsible disposal of our village's waste products. Several new businesses established since this time have also begun the process of becoming waste wise.
