Travel Inspiration


Conservation Volunteers Australia believes in a healthy and sustainable environment and for everyone to be involved in managing and protecting that environment. They offer environmental volunteer opportunities in and around the Townsville region that connect people to nature and contribute to improving and protecting native habitats. All are welcome to participate in their projects to make a difference in the community, learn something new and meet other locals.

Creekwatch is an opportunity to learn more about our waterways and how to keep them healthy. Come along for a day or two to conduct fish and macro-invertebrate (water bug) surveys, undertake water quality monitoring, look out for water birds and clean up the waterways. It is a fantastic way to see out of the way areas around Townsville.

Creekwatch runs on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 7.30am to 1pm visiting Louisa Creek, the Townsville Town Common, Bluewater Creek, Fairfield Waters, Sach’s Creek, Stuart Creek, Rollingstone Creek and Bohle River. Transportation (from a pick up point), safety gear and morning tea are provided.

In addition to their weekly projects, they run monthly beach scrub camping trips, and occasional weekend tree planting days and marine debris beach clean ups the whole family can join!

Due to current advice on public gatherings, please contact the host of this event to confirm it is proceeding as planned.
