Our history goes back to September 1991 when Save our Riverfront Bushland (SORB), a Centenary
suburbs residents’ committee, was established after a public meeting was held to
express concern at the wholesale clearing of remnant riverfront bushland.
Developer Australian Housing and Land’s (AHL) pre-emptive clearing of 21
hectares of land along the riverfront just prior to the Council’s
introduction of the Vegetation Protection Ordinance code.

Native plants 

We can provide you with lists of native plants suitable for our area.

Wildlife study

Foxes, deer and other introduced species are a danger to the native fauna and flora in our area, but our area is also home to a number of desirable native species.

Tree protectors

Every Winter feral deer eat the bark off native trees in urban bushland and suburban street trees around Brisbane. Knitted tree protectors are a proven way of discouraging the deer from killing our native trees. We are looking for volunteers to knit tree protectors using any old wool scraps. ..

We see them all too rarely.

The native tree frogs are noisy little creatures but it's really exciting to have them come and visit.  They're most visible in the wet weather.

Nature is all around us.

Few people realise that Australia has many species of native bee, most of which are stingless.
