The site was purchased by Sunshine Coast Council in August 2013 under the Environment Levy Land Acquisition Program to protect the areas biodiversity and support a critical link in Commonwealth mapped Maroochy - Noosa Wallum Corridor.
The Kabi Kabi First Nation’s People have also identified the reserve as culturally significant, located adjacent to ceremonial pathways and songlines.
Today remnant wetlands and vegetated areas cover most of the site which includes endangered lowland subtropical gallery rainforest, koala habitat, scribbly gum forest, areas of coastal heath, melaleuca forest, and wetlands. Approximately 29ha remain as cleared open space from previous agricultural activities onsite.
This reserve is open to the public and can be walked anytime. Your observations will help scientists and Sunshine Coast Council to understand how our region is changing as a result of climate change and inform strategies to address these impacts.
