Goondicum Station: Catchment Conservation Alliance
At the Southern End of the Great Barrier Reef, Goondicum Station sits at the head of the Burnett River and is within one of Australia’s most unique sub-tropical ecosystems, home to a large range of flora and fauna species.
Across the property Blue Gum, Narrow Leaved Ironbark, Broad Leaved Ironbark, Spotted Gum, Gum Topped Box, Red Bloodwood and Rough Bark Apple house endangered Glossy Black Cockatoos, Greater Gliders and Koalas, while rocky outcrops along the river provide habitat for colonies of endangered Rock Wallabies.
Running both a Human-Induced Regeneration and Avoided Clearing project at Goondicum under the Land Restoration Fund, the Campbells are reinventing their property in a region which is known as one of the most cleared areas in Australia.
As a direct result of the Campbell’s work, the condition of habitat for endangered species and ecosystems will be improved and the provision of food and shelter for a number of endangered species will be maintained. Regeneration of native vegetation along the headwaters of the Burnett River also reduces sediment and nutrient run-off, helping to address water quality at the Great Barrier Reef.
Work with us
Applications are now open for the second round of Land Restoration Fund (LRF) funding. The LRF aims to expand carbon farming in Queensland by supporting land-sector carbon projects that deliver additional environmental, socio-economic and First Nations co-benefits. GreenCollar has partnered with landholders to successfully deliver a number of LRF projects, including the first project to sell LRF ACCUs at Goondicum Station. Read on to learn more about how we’re helping landholders to participate in this program, with ACCUs created by LRF projects commanding a premium.
