Our Creek

Palm Creek cuts through the middle of the property and contains a variety of fauna and flora which we feel improves the plantation – except for the feral pigs which we don’t encourage! This biodiversity includes birdlife. A couple of members of a Townsville bird group popped into the plantation and counted some 27 varieties of birds in half an hour. We will try to do a proper count through the year. A pair of Jabirus nest at the top of a tall tree next to the plantation and feed from our waterlily pond. And macropods? Agile wallabies are everywhere, as are several other kangaroo species, the odd dingo and even peacocks.
