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.
This project works to repair gully erosion in the Normanby basin and train Traditional Owners in the skills needed to carry out such work.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.
The West Normanby distal gully site on Springvale Station is identified as the most important sediment source in the Normanby Basin. Targeted remediation works on active gullies are being implemented to reduce erosion and protect river and Great Barrier Reef habitats.View
Experts in gully remediation, water quality, sediment management and soils met in the Far North last week to share learnings and new knowledge fromView
As a continuation of the ongoing gully remediation trials carried out by Cape York NRM on Crocodile Station, three fast moving gully headcuts have been stabilised using rock chutes and energy dissipation pools. The channels downstream of the gullies have been revegetating over time.View
