Management of the Reserve

A Board of Trustees was appointed and gazetted on March, 18, 1977 to oversee the management of the Reserve. The Board of Trustees was later incorporated to form the Freds Pass Reserve Management Board Inc., with the name changed in 2006 to Freds Pass Sport and Recreation Management Board Inc., to reflect the changing role of the Board.

Whilst the day-to-day operation of the Reserve is undertaken by an operations manager, administration staff, grounds staff and caretakers, much of the original planning and construction of facilities has been through the efforts of volunteers.

Freds Pass ReserveThe importance of continued community involvement in the future development of the Reserve cannot be underestimated.

The Board’s master plan will ensure that the Reserve’s unique, natural, open and rural character is maintained; while providing appropriated sporting and community facilities for the future users of the Reserve. The master plan can be viewed on our web site or you can call the office for a copy.


The Litchfield Council provides operational funding as well as some annual capital works funding. The Board is eligible to apply for facilities funding from NT Government’s annual round of sport and recreation funding. Grants of any description are constantly sourced to improve the precinct.
