The City is delivering a planting to offset environmental impacts in accordance with our City Plan priorities. Approximately 10,000 plants will be installed and maintained in a known fauna corridor.

We're delivering a planting project within priority conservation areas of Hinterland Regional Park.

Hinterland Regional Park is part of a known fauna corridor with sightings of healthy koalas occurring in the park.

Project description

  • Planting of approximately 10,000 koala habitat trees and endemic plants
  • The plants will offset environmental impacts in the local area
  • Ongoing maintenance and assisted restoration (weed control) of existing vegetation and planting areas.
  • This work forms part of our City Plan.

Project benefits

  • An increase in the number of koala food trees and habitat trees within the park
  • Improved koala habitat and connectivity through the park
  • Restoration of endemic plant communities
  • Improved amenity through tree planting and weed control.

Project impacts

Park users won't be greatly impacted by this work. Planting began in November 2020 and will continue until March 2021, weather permitting. Please be aware of any temporary signage or track exclusions when you visit the park.

Report your koala sightings

If you see a koala - whether it's healthy, sick, injured or deceased - report your sighting. Your report will provide us with valuable information about koala distribution and habitat. It also helps our conservation planning at this site and right across the Gold Coast.
