VALE Warwick Exton


It is with great sadness that KCA share the news of the passing of Warwick Exton.

Warwick had been a Frankston resident for many of his 100 years and was a strong community advocate.

He was an active member of Action Sweetwater Creek Inc. for 37 years, with nine years as President and 32 years on the committee. Last year Warwick published a book on the history of the Sweetwater Creek Nature Reserve.

Over decades, KCA and Action Sweetwater Creek have worked together with a common purpose to restore these unique local waterways. In both cases Melbourne Water is the responsible waterway manager -our community organizations share much in common.

This year Warwick was recognised for his contribution to the local community by being named the Frankston Citizen of the Year.

Warwick was known by many across the local environmental movement.

 He was an outspoken advocate against inappropriate development and strived to improve our natural environment. 

At 100 years, Warwick still was a leading campaigner to Stop the Great Wall on Frankston’s Waterfront.

He made a final statement on permanent height controls before he passed. This was witnessed by his family.
