Cambooya Landcare Group
Cambooya Landcare Association is dedicated to providing information and assistance to landholders, community groups and schools to address environmental concerns. This is achieved through services and publications provided at our Resource Centre and Office, a range of tools and equipment that we have for loan, our native tree nursery and through the wide variety of Projects that we engage with the community to deliver environmental outcomes.
The Cambooya Landcare Association is currently undertaking a project to gather a better understanding of grass weeds on the Eastern Darling Downs. As part of this project, the Cambooya Landcare group will be shortly be asking local landholders to complete a quick survey about grass weeds on their property. This information will be used to increase knowledge on the types of grass weeds present in the region, their extent and vectors.
A short survey, along with factsheets on grass weeds common to the region, will be posted out soon to local landholders. This survey may also be completed electronically by visiting https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/cambooyalandcare. Those who contribute by filling out this survey can also go into a draw to win a $100 voucher for Felton Produce.
If you would like any further information on grass weeds, the survey, or project in general, please contact us.

The Cambooya Landcare Group has recently been successful in the 2011-2012 round of Community Action Grants funded through the Federal Government’s Caring for Our Country initiative. The project aims to raise awareness and establish plans and guidelines to promote active conservation and extension of koala habitat in the region. For more information visit our Current Projects page.
Additional information has been added to our website in order to assist landholders in decision making processes relating to monitoring land condition and better management practices as a result of our Environmental Management Systems project. As well as outlining a number of current, nationally recognised EMSs, the Cambooya Landcare Publications page highlights various documents and resources, available through our landcare office, relating to environmental management and practices in the Cambooya region and surrounding areas.
The Cambooya Landcare office has had a recent upgrade with the installation of a solar power system. Following a successful grant through the Queensland Government, a system consisting of a 1.5kW inverter and 6 x 250W solar panels has been put in place. The solar panels harness energy from the sun, converting light energy into DC electricty and feeds it back into the grid. For more information on the advantages of installing a solar power system visit the Queensland Government Office of Clean Energy Homepage.
