Twin Creek Rehabilitation Project

Home / Partner Map Submission / Twin Creek Rehabilitation Project

The Whitsunday Regional Council owns and manages the Twin Creek reserve behind Twin Creek Court. Most of the reserve is located close to Twin Creek which flows into Waite Creek. There is some remnant rainforest vegetation along the creek. The cleared areas away from the creek are colonised by Guinea grass and other weeds and are eroding due to vehicle and pedestrian access. The Whitsunday Regional Council in conjunction with Whitsunday Landcare and Reef Catchment Pty Ltd have begun rehabilitating some of the cleared areas with native plants. The purpose of the revegetation is to improve the aesthetics of the creek area, increase biodiversity values and reduce the weedy grass areas. It is hoped that nearby residents support the revegetation project and possibly even assist with the nurturing of the plants over time.
