Yaralla Estate Community Advisory Committee

The Yaralla Estate Community Advisory Committee was established in late 2013.

The role of the Committee is to advise the Chief Executive of Sydney Local Health District on maintaining and utilising the beautiful estate for the benefit of the Local Health District and Community.

The Sydney Local Health District maintains the estate in accordance with the wishes of the Walker Trust.

  • advise and assist the Trustee (SLHD) in the development and review of its plans and policies for Yaralla Estate;
  • monitor and evaluate the use of the Yaralla Estate;
  • advise the Trustee (SLHD) on possible new or modified services, facilities and uses;
  • advise the Trustee (SLHD) on everything from maintenance priorities to tree planting and conservation management plans;
