Summary

This Project has been designed to revegetate 17.5 ha in Great Sandy Strait sub-catchments. Additional weed eradication work will be completed on 5 ha. The weed control will be specifically targeting Weeds of National Significance (WoNs).

Noosa & District Landcare to complete re-vegetation and to undertake weed eradication at the designated areas. Selection of sites has been based on prioritisation of species using existing knowledge and advice from relevant land managers. Weed control methods will be selected on a site-by-site basis depending on target species, site access and prevailing weather conditions.

Revegetation activities will take place at the following areas:
  • 12 ha Yurol State Forest
  • 1.68 ha Mimburi
  • 2.97 ha Six Mile Creek
  • 2.5 ha (1km) Marita Wood Property

WoNs - Cats Claw Creeper and Madeira Vine - eradication around Six Mile Creek and various properties.

Benefits

These works aim to provide protection against erosion and help improve the ecological character of the Great Sandy Strait. Yurol State Forest provides habitat for koalas and greater gliders. Lowland Subtropical Rainforest around Mary river and Belli creek confluence accommodate giant barred frog and Mary River cod.

Native vegetation will benefit from cats claw creeper and Madeira vine eradication as WoNs have an impact on the health of riparian zones. Cats claw creeper and Madeira vine often smother, kill and collapse native vegetation, causing stream banks to slump and dump sediment loads into the water.
