Our flora and Fauna

The Bayside area supports a wide range of marine and land flora and fauna. Although many of the reserves have been previously cleared or altered our groups work hard to restore the natural environments.

Who are we?

The Bayside Creeks and Catchments Group (formerly the Bayside Environmental Network) have been restoring the health of the Wynnum, Lota and Lower Tingalpa Creeks and their catchments since 1991.

We strive to maintain and restore the ecological integrity and high bio-diversity values of the creeks and their catchments. We also aim to build and share a knowledge and understanding of these valuable ecosystems through community engagement, education, awareness and support.

Restoration and on-ground works are top priorities for us. As urban development continues to put increasing pressure on our precious environment the need to step in and reverse vegetation loss and improve the condition of existing bushland areas is more important than ever. We are working towards this goal through:

  • Supporting bushcare groups
  • Applying and managing grants to expand current restoration works
  • Tree planting days with local community groups
  • Providing opportunities for local businesses to get involved through corporate volunteering days and sponsoring sites.

If you'd like to join us - we'd love to hear from you. To find out how you can get involved or learn more about our natural environment email us or phone: President Charlie Robinson 0400 404 929, Treasurer Ian Curtis, Project Manager Keith Brown 0414 869 688, Secretary Robyn Gulliver.

Our Catchment

Moreton Bay and its waterways provide quality of life, amenity and social harmony, with activities including fishing, swimming, boating, scenic appreciation, tourism and recreation. most important of all are the ecosystem services provided by mother nature providing the biodiversity of landscape and wildlife around us. These environmental values support our lifestyles and livelihoods and make the bayside a wonderful place to be.

Bayside Creeks Catchment Group operates across the Wynnum Creek and Lota & Lower Tingalpa catchments, collectively covering an area of about 30 square km within the Brisbane City Council local government area.

Our funders

Bayside Creeks Catchment Group is very lucky to have the strong support of a number of funders, both past and present. In particular Brisbane City Council, through their establishment and management of the Bushcare organisation has been crucial to our success.

We have also received support from the Federal Government, Port of Brisbane, and many others. Thank you all tremendously.
