Our Mission

Friends of Lagoon Creek Group is a passionate conservation organization dedicated to the protection and preservation of Lagoon Creek catchment, located in Caboolture. 

With a strong focus on creating community commitment to environmental stewardship, this group works to enhance the biodiversity and ecological health of the local area.

Our mission is to be actively engaging the local community in conservation efforts and actively seek community involvement. We strive to create a sustainable future by promoting the restoration of its ecosystems, advocating for responsible land management practices, and raising awareness about the importance of protecting our natural resources. Through our dedicated team Friends of Lagoon Creek Group undertakes a wide range of conservation initiatives.

These efforts include:

Habitat Restoration: We organize regular clean-up events and tree planting activities to restore the natural habitats along the creek. By removing invasive species and reintroducing native plants, we aim to improve the biodiversity and provide a healthier ecosystem for the local flora and fauna.

Community Engagement: Friends of Lagoon Creek Group believes in the power of community involvement. We organize educational workshops, nature walks, and community forums to engage and educate residents, schools, and businesses about the importance of environmental conservation. We also collaborate with other local organizations, government bodies, and experts to maximize our impact and build a network.


Funded Conservation Projects:

These projects may include habitat restoration, tree planting initiatives, or wildlife conservation programs. Through careful planning and project management, Friends of Lagoon Creek ensures that every dollar raised contributes to tangible outcomes and long-term ecological benefits.

Local Indigenous Plant Sales:

In addition to seeking external funding, Friends of Lagoon Creek generates revenue through local indigenous plant sales. These sales not only provide financial support for the organization but also encourage the use of native plants in landscaping and local and private ecological restoration efforts.  By promoting the use of indigenous plants, Friends of Lagoon Creek aims to enhance biodiversity, provide habitat for wildlife, and create sustainable landscapes within the community. The local plant sales not only serve as fundraising opportunities but also raise awareness about the importance of native flora in maintaining a healthy environment.

Networking with Other Organizations:

Friends of Lagoon Creek recognizes the power of collaboration and networking to achieve their conservation goals. The group actively engages with other like-minded organizations, such as environmental nonprofits, community groups, and government agencies, to foster partnerships and expand their influence. By joining forces with these organizations, Friends of Lagoon Creek can access additional resources to make a difference in our community and to spread awareness about conservation matters.


Lagoon Creek  is a watercourse in the Caboolture Shire, it contains patches of remnant bushland (250acres). It is an important part of the ecosystem within the Caboolture Shire and provides a regular water flow into the Tea Tree Swamp Wetlands found there. These watercourses provide life for many species of plants and animals. Lagoon creek Catchment actually begins at Moodlu and runs in an easterly direction through the north of Caboolture before entering a Tea Tree Swamp on the eastern side of the Bruce Highway ( The Wamuran catchment empties into king john creek and then caboolture river). The reserve also has two highways running through two of its ends, one the Bruce and the other the Dáguilar highway

The reserve has quite an interesting diversity of forest types from open dry eucalyptus forest & endangered squiggle gum to melaleuca coastal paperbark swamp and riparian riverine with pockets of littoral rainforest species. Because Caboolture is at the start of the glasshouse mountains many of the plants found here can be found along the sunshine coast and are sand-loving Coastal Species.

We are truly blessed to live in such an iconic and naturally diverse place  in the world. We have a huge opportunityto be able to preserve this and share it with many generations of Australians and visitors all around the world.
This is part of our culture and our story as an Australian citizen.
