  • Lamington National Park

    Sitting on the QLD/NSW border, Lamington is known for its lush rainforests, mountain views, waterfalls and wildlife. The park is home to several species of threatened birds and was added to the National Heritage list in 2007.

  • Water Dragon chilling out in Springbrook

    Water Dragons are common in riparian habits across South-East Queensland. Often spotted in inner-city suburbs they have remained resilient through the modification of their natural habitat.

  • Humpback whales off the coast of Hervey Bay.

    Humpbacks became protected globally in 1965 following a dramatic decline in populations due to whaling. Numbers have slowly begun recovering but we need to protect coastal waters to ensure their future.

  • Lake McKenzie (Boorangoora) on Fraser Island.

    Lake McKenzie covers over 150 hectares and sits about 100 metres above sea level. Due to the white silica that makes up its sandy shores the water is so pure it is unsuitable for many species.
