Design Your Creek Week

Ipswich's Small Creek was once a meandering natural stream that flowed into Deebing Creek. Today, it’s a straight concrete channel that offers very little value to the community or environment.

That’s about to change: Small Creek will return to a natural waterway through a terrific Council project. As well as clean water and habitat for wildlife, the new Small Creek will allow for better path and bikeway connections and the opportunity to interact with nature in a parkland setting.

We're kicking off the project with Design Your Creek Week, working on site and learning from the local community. Click to read more and find out how you can be part of the fun.
