Millet Park Revisited
A couple of years ago Tamborine Mountain Landcare received a grant from the State Government for the Millet Reserve Lyrebird Project. The objective was to extend the known lyrebird habitat in this area. At the end of that project, a section of the reserve still remained untouched, with a huge infestation of lantana and molasses grass.
A dedicated young Zac Holt, who works for World As I Am (Guy Cooper - our principal contractor), has been steadily working to eradicate these weeds and has helped in the huge task of planting out the area with native species. Single-handed, Zac planted 150 trees and shrubs, at the recent National Tree Day. This was a mighty effort which he undertook as a volunteer. In a couple of years this last section will be just as flourishing as the young forest thriving on the other side of the road. The entrance to Millet Park is at the cul de sac at Carey Parade, North Tamborine.
