This project aims to remove weeds (through chemical and/or mechanical control) including rubber vine, lantana, bellyache, parthenium, parkinsonia, and prickly acacia. Best management practice will be used working downstream from the headwaters of streams and creeks.


The project will:
  • encourage the re-vegetation of native species which will in turn reduce sediment run-off to the Burdekin River and Great Barrier Reef.
