Williamson Road Park Project
217 Williamson Rd, Morayfield Qld

Stage 1 - 2015/2016

Koala Action Inc. fully self funded project $10,000

KAI utilised its own funds in June 2015 to replant 970 native tube stock, one quarter of which were koala food trees at 217 Williamson Road, Morayfield.  Work on Stage 1 of the Williamson Road Park Replanting Project was undertaken by Barung Landcare. 

They were subcontracted to prepare the site for planting which included marking the 60 metre by 30 metre site, spraying it twice with Roundup to destroy exotic weeds and grasses

Weed free forest mulch was purchased, delivered and spread to a depth of 15 cms over the site prior to planting.  The holes were then dug and the planting took place in July with 4 litres of water being applied to each plant on three separate occasions.

The Australian Koala Foundation (AKF) kindly donated $1,237 to purchase the initial tube stock.  The 242 koala food trees planted included a combination of primary and secondary species.

In January 2016, an additional 50 native tube stock were planted by KAI members, one quarter of which were koala food trees.

The funds provided included a watering regime of approximately four litres of water per plant on three separate occasions. Our commitment extends to undertaking two years of maintenance on all sites which includes manual removal of weeds surrounding the plant and the use of a broad-spectrum systemic Glyphosate herbicide to remove weed and grass species that negatively impact on the growth of the plants.

Stage 2 - 2017

Moreton Bay Regional Council Community Assistance Smarty Grant - $5,000

Koala Action Inc. (KAI)  successfully applied for and was granted funding from the Moreton Bay Regional Council to undertake Stage 2 of the project.

  The L-shaped extension was marked out and sprayed twice to remove exotic weeds and grasses.  Funding included the purchase of weed free forest mulch which was subsequently delivered to the site and spread. 

KAI members augured the holes prior to the planting which was undertaken on 18th March 2017. 

KAI was fortunate in having 19 volunteers available to help with the planting on a warm and sunny Saturday morning. 

Moreton Bay Regional Council kindly provided 4 litres of water free of charge for each of the 320 tube stock(one quarter of which were koala food trees) that went into the ground.  KAI will fund ongoing watering as and when necessary as well as undertake maintenance of this site for a minimum period of two years. 

The Australian Koala Foundation paid for the plants for both Stage 2 and Stage 1.
