Creek Catchments program

Within the Brisbane City Council local government area, there are over 25 creek catchments. Many of these catchments flow into the Brisbane River. Council's Creek Catchments program works with 12 community-based catchment groups across Brisbane to help protect and restore creeks and catchments in partnership with volunteers, businesses and other government agencies.

For more information about Brisbane's creek catchments, view our Know your creek and catchment page.

Creek Catchment volunteer activities (bushland restoration on Council land) are currently restricted to a maximum of 100 people. Social distancing and hygiene practices, as outlined in the Community Restoration COVID-safe guidelines, are being implemented at these activities and working bees.
