Cnr Mt Lindesay Highway & Cusack Lane JIMBOOMBA


There are signifigant patches of Melaleuca Irbyana in the Jimboomba and surrounding areas. Use of the phrase Swamp Tea-tree Forest is not common - but indicates that more than the single species has federal protection. No species - plant or animal - exists in isolation but is part of an interconnected web - much of which the lay person may not know about.

Are you a landholder - or caring tenant - with this endangered  ecological group of plants?

You are most cordially invited to an Information Session to find out about these vegetation types, the legislation protecting them and the opportunities available to assist with their management. Questions such as:

What is the significance of having endangered Brigalow or Swamp Tea-tree Forest on your property?  will be addressed.

The following specialists will be on hand to brief you about the project and to answer any further questions you may have: Liz Gould: Environment Sector Partnerships Manager - SEQC - South East Queenlsland Catchments Association.

For catering purposes please RSVP
