Munibung Hill as a portion of land within the Lake Macquarie City Council (LMCC) LGA has become a neglected area that lacks an overall plan for its care and maintenance. In April 2022 Lake Macquarie City Council adopted a Management Plan for Munibung Hill.

Munibung Hill Conservation Society (MHCS) has a vision for its care, repair and long term custodianship that aims to highlight the actions needed to drive the changes necessary for conservation and protection, and control invasive introduced plants and animals before they become the dominant species;

Munibung Hill is currently viewed as either a secret and private place for personal use where civil society codes of conduct apply or, a place where people encroach on this special place with no holds barred (not abiding by the rules or common courtesies) for whatever anti-social behaviour they see fit;

MHCS is committed to advocating on behalf of this important portion of land such that Munibung is recognised as a most significant piece of ‘country’, housing a vast community of plant and animal species integral to the quality of life within Lake Macquarie City.
