Big Scrub Landcare


Many early settlers and landowners failed to appreciate the value of balance in the landscape, and the importance of rainforest as the lifeblood and lungs of our subtropical countryside. They called Australia’s largest subtropical lowland rainforest ‘The Big Scrub’ and left less than 1% of this now endangered rainforest to succeeding generations.

A Growing investment

As a not-for-profit organisation our achievements depend on public donation, corporate sponsorship and Government grants as well as the hard work of our committee and landholders who fund and undertake substantial rainforest restoration on their own properties. So the beauty of supporting Landcare is obvious: you can see where your money grows.


In all our projects and educational activities we focus on good science, best practice and cost-effective outcomes. We utilise the diverse expertise of our members, who come from scientific, farming and business backgrounds, and our links with leading academics and professionals practicing in rainforest ecology, biology and restoration.

Now in our 18th year; and as with previous years the program will see some of Australia’s leading ecologists, rainforest regenerators, naturalists, scientists and other professionals sharing their expertise through presentations, practical workshops and ecological walks and talks.
