Trees for The Atherton and
Everlyn Tablelands


Trees for the Evelyn and Atherton Tablelands (TREAT) was started in 1982 by botanist Joan Wright and rainforest ecologist Geoff Tracey, who recognised the need for a community-based tree planting organisation to revegetate degraded lands and create corridors for wildlife on the Tablelands.


TREAT has wonderful working relationships with the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service – Restoration Services – at the Lake Eacham Nursery, many landholders, other landcare and community groups.

Tree Kangaroo &
Mammal Group

The Tree-Kangaroo and Mammal Group (TKMG) is an incorporated community group based on the Atherton Tablelands in Far North Queensland, Australia, made up of local residents interested in, and concerned for, the conservation of North Queensland's rich mammal fauna.


These include Australia's largest arboreal mammals, the Lumholtz's and Bennett's Tree-kangaroos (tree-climbers), the Spotted-tailed Quoll and the rainforest dwelling Musky Rat-kangaroo, and mammals of the wet sclerophyll (eucalypt) forests including the Yellow-bellied Glider, Northern Bettong, and the Black-footed Tree-rat.

Cairns & Far North Environment Centre

The Cairns and Far North Environment Centre (CAFNEC) is the peak regional non-government environment organisation for Far North Queensland.


Every environmental issue in North Queensland is covered in this web site.


It was established in 1981 by concerned local and regional community members with an interest in nature conservation and environmental protection.


Our mission as an organisation is to ensure the unique and special natural heritage of Far North Queensland is protected.





 North Queensland Naturalist Club 



The North Queensland Naturalist existed variously as a journal and newsletter from 1932 until 2002. On 3 December 2015, we held a re-launch event at the Flecker Botanic Gardens in Cairns. This was well-attended by an enthusiastic audience.


This is a fully online peer-reviewed journal of natural history, ecology and conservation biology, free to both authors and readers, with the first of the new issues, Volume 46, now online as of July 2016. We believe original observations of flora or fauna, from land, sea, river or sky, make important contributions to the understanding and conservation of nature in the region. We believe there are many individuals and organisations including land managers and community groups in the far north of Queensland that will enjoy and benefit from such a publication.


We encourage contributions from interested persons of all skill levels from amateur to professional.



 Kuranda Envirocare

Kuranda Envirocare is a volunteer community organisation based in Kuranda, a part of the bioregion of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area in Far North Queensland, Australia. Kuranda Envirocare is located in Djabugay Country (also known as Tjapukai). We seek to work alongside the Djabugay Traditional Owners and other First Australians to build and strengthen relationships between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Peoples.  We value and seek to protect the natural environment of Kuranda and its environs, work to conserve and repair biodiversity in the area, and to educate the community to do likewise.

Kuranda Envirocare has a special commitment to preserving and strengthening the Envirolink Corridor​, a 10 kilometre stretch of remnant rainforest south and west of Kuranda.


 C4 Community for Coastal and Cassowary Conservation

C4 focuses on Habitat, Education, Nursery and Rural matters.
The aims are:
* To implement the Cassowary Management Plan, Mission    Beach environs;
* To promote and support World Heritage values;
* To identify and ensure the retention of environmentally    significant areas;
* To liaise with all levels of government and have input        into all planning and development that impacts on the      social, economic and environmental well being of the        Mission Beach community;
* To maintain a heightened community awareness of    environmental issues through education and           dissemination of information;
* To establish and maintain a gift fund for the acceptance of gifts made to the association for the association's           environmental purposes.
Through the working groups and the vision statement of "Knowing Keeping Sharing", C4 undertakes to protect Mission Beach's natural values to ensure a healthy environment, community and economy. We believe Mission Beach can develop and maintain its unique identity, including being a place where you can still see a cassowary in the wild.
