Griffith University

About

In 1971, Griffith was created to be a new kind of university—one that offered new degrees in progressive fields such as Asian studies and environmental science. At the time, these study areas were revolutionary—today, they're more important than ever.

Since then, we’ve grown into a comprehensive, research-intensive university, ranking in the top 5% of universities worldwide. Our teaching and research spans five campuses in South East Queensland and all disciplines, while our network of more than 120,000 graduates extends around the world.

Griffith continues the progressive traditions of its namesake, Sir Samuel Walker Griffith, who was twice the Premier of Queensland, the first Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia, and the principal author of the Australian Constitution.

The project is assisting in the delivery of the main outcome of the Reef Trust Gully Erosion Control Programme; to reduce sediment loads from gully erosion by 50% in the highest priority subcatchments in the Normanby Basin. In this specific project of the Programme the remediation sites are Crocodile Gap, Granite Normanby, and the West Normanby Bridge.
