Hooka Point underwent a transformation in 2001 with a community-driven project called Bright Lives. The idea was to develop the area as a special place that incorporates indigenous and non-indigenous concepts of healing and wellbeing. The creek, bridge and pontoon with its decorative carvings are in one distinct area but connected by paths to the circular walking track closer to the lake. One of the favourite stop-offs on the track is a two-story caged bird-watching tower that looks out over the water to Kanahooka.
Key benefits of planting at this site included increased native coverage, protection of endangered ecological communities and increased habitat for birds
