The population growth in South East Queensland’s metropolitan areas has been the driving force to enhance visual, social, cultural and ecological experiences in the urban environment.
Despite our growing region, only 31% of residents in the lower Brisbane catchment utilise their waterways on a weekly basis for leisure activities. At Healthy Land and Water, our mission is to establish an emotional connection between South East Queensland’s urban communities and their local waterways.
Since 2005, our Water by Design (WbD) initiative has been creating urban spaces that protect environmental values while providing quality recreation and social opportunities.
The Davidson St Creek Restoration Project is a testament to how the team fill knowledge gaps and implement WbD elements to improve sustainable water management.
By facilitating information exchange, networking, and constructive debate, Healthy Land and Water members are motivated to deliver high quality urban environments.
