What are we doing?

Guided and self-guided wildflower walks through the unique wallum habitat on Bribie Island.

Why are we doing it?

Wallum is a type of ecosystem only found on the sand islands and coastal fringe of South East Queensland. As with other coastal ecosystems, wallum is highly threatened by the pressure for coastal development. We want to raise awareness of the special plants that thrive in the nutrient-poor sandy soil, and encourage residents to plant them on their land to restore some of the habitat that has been lost.

Who is involved?

Project coordinators:

  • Angela Armitage

  • Mike Howells

Project participants:

  • Geoff Ginn

  • Mark Stanton-Cook

  • Ben Timmings

  • Carol Wood

  • Roxanne Zolin

How are we doing it?

We are running a series of walks that coincide with Sunshine Coast Council's Wildflower Festival, with our guided walks continuing into November as wildflowers often flower later on Bribie.

How can you help?

We need volunteers to:

  • prepare the self-guided walks by setting out signs

  • assist walkers with questions on the self-guided walks

  • promote the walks to local residents and also more widely
