Brisbane River Recovery
The Brisbane River is the lifeblood of South East Queensland. Known colloquially as the ‘Brown Snake’, the 344km-long river forms in Mt Stanley and flows through Brisbane before emptying in Moreton Bay.
Historically, the Brisbane River was admired for its natural beauty and known for the abundance of fish and rich vegetation along its banks. But since the mid-1800s, the river has suffered from the impacts of urbanisation, dredging and pollution.
At Healthy Land and Water, we love the Brisbane River and we’re committed to improving its condition and restoring some of its hallmark environmental values. In 2017, Healthy Land Water embarked on the Brisbane River Recovery initiative, which aims to tackle some of the issues facing the river through on-ground projects and clean-up programs.
