Noosa River

The name Noosa is believed to mean "Shady Place", an Aboriginal term.

The Noosa River flows predominantly north to south, beginning in the Como Escarpment, passing through the western basin to meet Teewah Creek before flowing south across the Noosa Plain. It then flows between Lakes Como and Cooloola before entering Lake Fig Tree and Lake Cootharaba, continuing to Lake Cooroibah and Lake Weyba and finally enters the South Pacific Ocean at Laguna Bay.

The Noosa River, some 60 km long, is the major drainage element contained within the Noosa River Catchment and the Great Sandy National Park. Source: NICA

Community Volunteers

A key feature of MangroveWatch is its close partnership between community volunteers and scientists from the James Cook University’s Mangrove Hub. Together they are systematically recording basic data as video and still imagery for assessments of estuarine habitat health.

Armed with expert support, training and advice, MangroveWatch volunteers in key regions are actively contributing to the monitoring of local estuaries and shorelines. An important goal in this phase of the program is to develop a network of like minded groups with the aim of producing public documents that describe important issues affecting local estuaries and mangroves, and their overall health.
