Summary

The aim of the project is to rehabilitate the important riparian habitat corridor along Upper Sandy Creek (near Flinders Peak Conservation Park) in order to re-connect two tracts of locally significant vine forest and improve habitat and viability of local threatened species. Activities include eradication of classified weeds (including lantana, cat’s claw creeper and balloon vine) and the collection, propagation and planting of 2000 native plants including the Flinders plum, Boonah tuckeroo and native jute. This project will build resilience in the head waters of the Bremer River and provide habitat for the local brush-tailed rock wallaby.
