Community Landcare Grants were awarded to nine groups to manage different threats to wetlands across the Burdekin Dry Tropics region. With help from the community and NQ Dry Tropics, all projects were successfully implemented and each improved the health of our local wetlands.

Nine community driven projects were funded through the 2015-2016 NQ Dry Tropics Community Landcare Grants. These projects resulted in:
  • vegetation protection and rehabilitation of 94.2 hectares
  • weed control of 95.65 hectares including Weeds of National Significance
  • collection of 1010 kg of marine debris covering 39.92 hectares
  • participation of more than 622 community volunteers.

The projects included:
  • BBIFMAC tackling aquatic weeds
  • Improving creek bank vegetation in Mundy Creek
  • CVA Controlling Invasive Grasses


Projects that are part of the 2015-2016 Community Landcare Grant Programme have worked to manage invasive weeds and protect and restore native vegetation across more than 150 hectares, including significant wetlands and waterways. More than $72,000 of funding was distributed to nine community groups for their projects through Community Landcare Grants, and each of these groups received incredible community support through in-kind contributions, cash contributions and volunteer labour worth more than $110,000.
