Judy and Julie on a creek side benchThis is maturing into a beautiful stretch of native vegetation along a creek line with a walking path for locals' enjoyment. The Ohia Court creek line is one of the Tamborine Mountain Landcare Inc projects. It forms part of a wider corridor regeneration connecting the escarpment with three important ecological features: MacDonald Section Tamborine Mountain National Park, A National Park section along Wongawallan Road and a native forest along Contour Road.

Report

A rough map drawn up for Landcare Regeneration planning gives a good overview of the corridor connections of which this site is a critical link. >Ohia Ct - TM Landcare Corridors Plan_1

Ohia Court  11This area had extensive weed coverage which was cleared and planted by a local resident working group and Landcare contractors under supervision of Judy Roland. The detailed report below contains plant lists from a pre-commencement survey and what has been planted since.

 

 

The lower section adjacent to Long Road has matured to a diverse mix of grasses, sedges, shrubs and trees. The upper westerly end is cleared with some established native tree growth and small plantings. It will mainly naturally regenerate in the next few years. Some ongoing support is needed for maintenance of weeds in this time and Judy can be contacted through Landcare if you can assist.

 A dirt walking track has been made with creek bridges and steps as needed. The upper section has a circuit along the creek and return via the upper hillside.

Ohia Court  29There is active bird life including small and large birds. Some nests were spotted for both types. The seat in the above picture provides a spot to rest and wait for the activity to come to you.Ohia Court  41

 

 

 

Ohia Court  24Ohia Court  28The creek is small but constantly running. There are rumours that a swimming pond once existed in the lower section but only minor evidence exists of its past existence. Some sections of the creek go underground in drier periods like the time of this walk.
