Our Buninyong community – why we love it

From the locals who came to Buninyong as a founding family, to the new locals who have chosen this patch as their place to settle, the value of the wonderful community spirit of Buninyong is a bonus to the beautiful landscape and historic buildings.

The redevelopment of Royal Park as a demonstration of the sustainable future we all need to move towards, is very much a community project - For the community, by the community.

Working groups spread the load, focus the effort, help with a succession plan, and continue to foster our community spirit.

We invite you to be a part of Royal Park’s redevelopment!

Buninyong Sustainability has created a number of working groups that you can participate in – whether that be a little or a lot! You can share your expertise or gain some new skills. The Working Groups include:

This project has been deliverd now, with the help of Buninyong Community Bank, and the City of Ballarat.  The Buninyong EV charging point was officially opened in January of 2020.
