The Gondwana World Heritage Area (WHA) forms part of the Great Eastern Ranges (GER) and borders the SEQ region to the south and south-west. The lack of connectivity to lowland habitats compromises the resilience of the WHA, particularly in the face of predicted climate change impacts, and reduces ecosystem functionality. The WHA and adjacent areas also provide habitat for a number of EPBC listed species.

The landholder involved in this project has a strong commitment to restoring and conserving the natural values of the property, demonstrated through a voluntary conservation agreement with the City of Gold Coast and a history of past activity.

Through this project the landholder will improve the condition and extent of 2ha of land along the banks of Cave Creek (known habitat for the giant barred frog) with headwaters joining Springbrook National Park (which is part of the WHA and known to contain habitat for spotted-tailed quoll and other threatened species).

Proposed project monitoring and maintenance:
  • establish one photo-point and take ‘before and after’ photographs to monitor changes in habitat condition over time
  • carry out ongoing maintenance until plants are established to improve biodiversity in the Gondwana World Heritage Area by improving the condition of native habitat on adjacent land through weed control
  • plant 2ha with native tree species.
