Project outline:

The Central Queensland Coast Bioregion Revegetation Project was a devolved grant project designed to provide incentives to landholders for revegetation and vegetation management activities. The objectives of the project were to promote activities such as revegetation, fencing off streams from livestock and use of off-stream water points, weed control in remnant vegetation and to provide landholder training.

Project achievements and outcomes:

  • 86 revegetation projects that planted 39,800 seedlings.
  • Five weed control projects that removed weeds from 44.5 ha of native vegetation.
  • 17 fencing projects that created 34 km of fencing to protect riparian and endangered remnant ecosystems.
  • Two off-stream watering points established to protect stream banks and riparian vegetation from livestock.
