Capricornia Catchments is a non-government, not-for-profit community based group focused on the sustainable management and use of the natural resources of the Fitzroy River and associated coastal catchments. From late 2002 Capricornia Catchments operated as a sub-committee of the Fitzroy Basin Association (FBA) and then became incorporated in January 2005. Since this time the organisation, in partnership with landholders, has undertaken over one hundred projects within the region to the value of more than $4.5 million to better manage the natural resources of our local area.
In working directly with land holders the primary focus of this partnership is the development and implementation of plans to guide resource management and activities.
In addition to this, the purpose of the organisation has evolved to include a broader approach to natural resource management. While on-ground works remain the major focus there is also significant work undertaken to provide activities that are educational as well as awareness raising. Capricornia Catchments also provides stakeholders a forum in which to discuss issues, identify solutions, agree on actions and cooperatively achieve common goals.
The Capricornia Catchments area covers approximately 60,000 sqkm from Nebo in the north, Miriam Value in the south and west to Tieri. The catchment area includes the coastal catchments of the Styx River, Shoalwater Creek, Waterpark Creek and the Capricorn Coast while incorporating areas of the Rockhampton, Gladstone and Isaac Regional Councils.
Through this Facebook page, Capricornia Catchments aims to not only promote the many incentives available through Federal and State Government funding and grant opportunities, but to also act as a hub, providing objective information that is valuable to members of the local community.
Financial incentives can be accessed through FRCC to support projects, with landholders contributing significant amounts of in-kind funding. On‑ground projects a
