Native garden guides

Our Native Neighbours tram is about to go into hibernation but its message will live on. And with sunnier days on the horizon there couldn’t be a better time to get stuck into your garden to support the lives of native animals and plants in our cities and suburbs.

A Platypus first for Yourka

The first Platypus to be recorded at Yourka Reserve (far north Queensland) was found recently in Cameron Creek. Waterways such as this one, protected forever by the reserve and adjoining national parks, can provide vital habitat for the species.
