Upper Tingalpa Creekcare 

Building a thriving and healthy Upper Tingalpa Creek Catchment for you, the community and environment.

Upper Tingalpa Creekcare is a partnership between Seqwater and Bulimba Creek Catchment Committee. The program aims to work with interested landholders within the Upper Tingalpa Creek catchment to address key threats to water quality. By participating in the program landholders can access networking opportunities, advice and on the ground assistance to tackle specific weeds such as cats claw creeper. 

Upper Tingalpa Creek Catchment

Upper Tingalpa Creekcare Map

The Upper Tingalpa Creek Catchment includes the suburbs of Burbank, Sheldon, Priestdale and parts of Mount Cotton, Daisy Hill, Springwood, Rochedale South, Rochedale, Mackenzie, Belmont, Chandler and Capalaba. 

Creeks and tributaries in this catchment flow into the Leslie Harrison Dam, known locally as Tingalpa Creek Reservoir. The reservoir is a key source of our region’s drinking water.

As Leslie Harrison Dam provides drinking water to the broader community, Seqwater and Bulimba Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee (B4C) are eager to work with interested landholders, like yourself, to minimise risks to water quality.

By participating in the program, landholders can benefit from increased community connections, weed management support, training and workshops and free native plants.

It’s up to all of us to ensure our water is safe to enjoy, now and into the future.
