Chapman River Estuary Reserve Action Plan

The Chapman River Estuary, part of the Chapman River Regional Park, is a very popular recreation spot with people walking and cycling along the river trail, bird watching, picnicking and fishing off the river banks. It is also a place of cultural significance to many Aboriginal people and is the site of a federally listed Threatened Ecological Community. It is also home to migratory shore birds, turtles, other wildlife whose habitat needs to be maintained and protected.

To ensure this unique place of considerable environmental and cultural significance is safeguarded for future generations, an action plan is being developed. This development of the Chapman River Estuary Reserve Action Plan is funded by the State Government Natural Resources Management (NRM) Office.

The City has partnered with the Northern Agricultural Catchments Council (NACC) to work with the community and Traditional Owners to develop the Chapman River Estuary Reserve Action Plan. More here
