new about Honeywell site redevelopment

Wurundjeri Tribe Land Council cultural heritage manager Darren Griffin said the site had special significance. “They’re very concerned that (Wurundjeri) culture is managed effectively and those stories are told - how they lived and the importance of the area,” Mr Griffin said.

I have walked over this site many times and the appears to be no cave paintings, no stone tools, no middens, no remnant vegetation and the much of it is covered in concrete and what isn't has been irreversibly altered.

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm smells very funny to me

According to the bottom of this photo, 'Kenloch' was running as a reception centre though
the latest links to the house i can find are listed on the City Search and My Restaurant search engines.
and a link to kenloch.com.au which is no longer a functioning website.

I would assume its now privately owned..

Well done again Matt! What an interesting-looking place Kenloch is - very clearly Edwardian, but with that amazing tower.

With the benefit of your research, I've now discovered the following:
# Kenloch Guided Garden Tours
# Sat 2nd October. 3 tours available: 10am, 12 noon & 3pm
# Kenloch Manor, 487 Mt Dandenong Tourist Rd, Olinda. Melways 66 J9
# Tim Orpin, owner, botanist and collector of rare plants, hosts walking tours of the historic Kenloch Gardens. Sweeping lawns shaded by mature trees, soaring Himalayan rhododendrons, beds of rare woodland treasures and a lush fern gully are just a few of the many elements that combine to create one of the finest private gardens in the country.
# Tickets $30 includes Devonshire Tea. Call 9751 1009 to book.

“The Victorian civil and administrative Tribunal last month approved the development on the Honeywell site in Abbotsford, opposite kews Young Street including 586 apartments in three towers of up to 11 stories and a pontoon.
