Summary

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.

Benefits

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.
