Summary

A significant cultural heritage site, Myora Springs is also home to a number of EPBC listed species and the largest remnant of endangered littoral rainforest in South East Queensland. Works on the site will address erosion and weed invasion and will work closely with the Quandamooka People to ensure works are respectful of the cultural heritage on the site. 

The works will also involve the construction of a protective platform and partial board-walk, and builds on previously funded works. Signage promoting cultural heritage and environmental values will also be installed.

Benefits

This project will:
  • protect and rehabilitate Myora Springs on Stradbroke Island, a place that holds significant values for the Quandamooka People.
