This project seeks to undertake weeding and re-vegetation activities at the confluence of Bulimba Creek, the Oxbow and the Brisbane River.
The Bulimba Creek Oxbow Project has been implemented progressively over the last 10 years. During this time 14 community events have been held with approximately 220 members of the public helping restore this unique area of Brisbane. The Oxbow area showcases four types of vegetation and provides a unique educational opportunity for the community to learn about the complexity and productive value of the mangrove, saltmarsh and floodplain systems and the role they play in fisheries management, carbon sequestration and flood mitigation.
