15 January 2015
29 February 2016
The land manager will undertake the removal of invasive riparian weeds along Stockyard Creek and a nearby wetland on the property, totalling 3ha area across their two neighbouring properties. The weed control will be supplemented by planting of native grasses, shrubs and trees. Additionally Salvinia molesta will be treated and removed from the billabong on Lot 11.
These two properties have adjoining agricultural land. This includes cane to the north and north-east and horticulture to the north-west at higher altitude, according to contour mapping (Qld Globe data - Qld Gov 2014). Stockyard Creek lies to the south of the properties. It is a "very frequently connected" waterway as mapped under the Burrum Basin Hydrological Connections to the Great Barrier Reef.
Helping to meet the objectives and provide outcomes related to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) "Blue Maps" for the Burrum Catchment. Improved water quality, biodiversity.
