One of the Lord Mayor’s election commitments is $100M to the transformation of Oxley Creek from the Brisbane River to Larapinta into a revitalised green corridor with new parkland, lakes for recreation and flood mitigation, a new environmental education centre, an events plaza, restaurants and cafes, a  public aviary, sporting fields, bikeways and green trails. Find out more details at https://www.teamquirk.com.au/oxley-creek-to-become-landmark-brisbane-green-space/OCCA is supportive of any activities and funding that will improve Oxley Creek and its riparian zone as a sustainable habitat corridor for our valuable native wildlife but is keen to ensure that any changes are done sensitively, in keeping with the environment and in consultation with the community.

CreekWatch Works Team

Granard Wetlands is a 5.5 hectare area boarded by the Ipswich Motorway, Granard Road, Marshall Road and Rocklea Bunnings. Stable Swamp Creek passes through the corner of the site before flowing to Oxley Creek just west of the Ipswich Motorway.

Over the years Granard Wetlands has been extensively cleared and used as a dump site. It is now struggling with weed infestation.

What’s being done?

Over the next four years we will eradicate weeds, planting 25 000 grasses, shrubs and trees, nurturing them till they are able to thrive without assistance and undertake water quality monitoring.

CreekWatch promotes industry-led care of local waterways. To support the work being undertaken at Granard Wetlands CreekWatch is starting a CreekWatch Works team—an on-ground crew of local business people who will once a month weed, plant, water, remove rubbish and generally care for the wetlands.

Oxley Creek Catchment Association (OCCA) would like to return Granard Wetlands to a healthy green area that is free of weeds has many healthy native shrubs and trees. Granard Wetlands can again provide habitat for birds and mammals and contribute positively to the water quality of Stable Swamp Creek.

We need you to become a part of the CreekWatch Works team.

OCCA will provide training, guidance, equipment and coordination. All you need to provide is one or more enthusiastic people from your business for around 3 hours each month.

By being a part of CreekWatch Works you will:

  • Make a hands-on contribution to your local environment
  • Build a legacy of corporate environmental care
  • Network with other local businesses
  • Promote your business as one that cares for the local community and the environment

Through signage, social media and promotional material we will promote your business’ participation in CreekWatch Works.

Let’s Get Started!

Join us to celebrate the Granard Wetlands project and launch the CreekWatch Works team at Granard Wetlands near Marshall Road:

7am—10am Friday 27 November.

Drop-in to meet other local businesses involved in the project, tour the site, start weeding and planting and enjoy morning tea.
