Mount Ninderry Environment Reserve

Mount Ninderry Environment Reserve is managed by Sunshine Coast Council, protecting important core habitat, comprising 199 hectares of diverse native bushland and including eight regional ecosystems and an area of ‘endangered’ subtropical lowland rainforest.

60 hectares of the reserve is now a declared nature refuge, added in 2013 through council’s Environment Levy land acquisition program. In addition to the significant biodiversity values, the site is an important place for Aboriginal cultural heritage. Mount Ninderry is part of the Southeast Queensland song lines network—located within the lands of the Kabi Kabi First Nations.

Purpose

The purpose of the management plan is to describe the ecological, cultural, social, and economic values of the reserve and provide the associated management actions required to maintain or enhance these values over the next 10 years.

Community engagement

The draft Mount Ninderry Environment Reserve Management Plan was available for comment until Friday 4 October 2019.

Where to from here

The final plan will then be published and publicly available on council's website.
