Army maintenance activity

There will be occasional loud noises within the Greenbank and Purga Training Areas over the period 24th of January 2024 to the 1st of February 2024 as part of Defence’s Feral Animal Management Program.

Activities will occur during the early hours of the morning, only between the hours of 12:00am and 2:00am at Purga and 3:00am to 5:00am at Greenbank on each day.

This program will aid in reducing pest animal prevalence, particularly wild dogs and foxes which are the primary target species in addition to feral cats.  This will aid in protecting native flora and fauna from predation from feral animal species within the confines of the Greenbank and Purga Training areas.

The Australian Defence Force thanks the public sincerely for their patience and cooperation while this essential activity is being conducted.

Residents can enrol on the Greenbank and Purga Telstra SMS Messaging System by texting their name and their location to 0438 711 976.
