JUNE 2023 | Restoring life of Saltwater Creek catchment in Cairns
Nestled within a bustling residential estate just north of Cairns Central Business District, the Saltwater Creek catchment is a vibrant urban ecosystem teeming with life. With its mix of residential areas, public spaces, and remnant natural habitats, this catchment holds significance for the local community. In an exciting development, the Albanese Labor Government has announced a significant investment of $1.5 million to enhance the health of Saltwater Creek, reflecting a commitment to preserving local waterways and protecting native species. The announcement came on World Environment Day, an international day dedicated to promoting global and local awareness and action to protect our environment.
