pdfPlanning Document Release date:


In 2016 the Queensland Government purchased Springvale Station, a 56,295ha property in Far North Queensland (Figure 2), located just north of and connected to the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. Springvale Station was purchased to add to the States’ protected area estate for biodiversity conservation and to reduce accelerated soil erosion and sediment run-off entering the Normanby River basin, the largest basin that drains to the northern Great Barrier Reef (and the fourth largest river basin in the Great Barrier Reef catchment).
