Ross River Bush Garden is one of Townsville’s oldest community revegetation sites and incorporates open riparian forest, vine thicket, eucalypt woodland, wetlands, open grasslands, as well as the man-made Baza Island – a valuable, predator-free habitat for wildlife.
The Bush Garden project was commenced in 1994 by the Tropical Urban Production and Landcare Group (now CDTLI) to re-establish and protect local native plants, provide habitat for native animals, protect the banks of Ross River, provide shade and amenity for the community and to empower residents in caring for their local environment. The site has also proved valuable to the Townsville Regional Bird Observers Club who have been collecting bird sighting data here since 1994.
You can help us keep the Bush Garden in tip top shape by coming along to our Landcare days and lending a hand.
