Swamp tea-tree (Melaleuca irbyana) forest is considered endangered under Commonwealth and Queensland legislation. With funding provided through Powerlink GreenWorks and with support from the Australian Government’s Caring for our Country program, SEQ Catchments is providing support, advice and financial incentives to assist landholders in the region to conserve and enhance remnant and regrowth swamp tea-tree forest.

The landholder has completed Level 3 Property Management Planning training provided by SEQ Catchments and through this has developed a project action plan for implementation.

This project aims to continue protection and restoration of an endangered swamp tea tree remnant (mapped as RE 12.3.3c) along Camp Creek, near Toogoolawah.

Project activities include:
  • constructing 1km fencing to allow for improved grazing management of 2ha remnant swamp tea-tree forest
  • constructing one additional watering point to allow for improved grazing management.

Proposed project monitoring and maintenance:
  • establish one standard photo-point to monitor habitat condition and regrowth in fenced remnant area
  • undertake site condition assessment with assistance from SEQ Catchments staff
  • maintain fencing and follow controlled grazing management plan to prevent overgrazing in project area.


This project will:
  • improve biodiversity in the Toogoolawah area by increasing the extent of and improving the condition of endangered swamp tea tree forest through improved stock management and weed control.
