Welcome to the Lammermoor Native Gardens web site  
 
The purpose of this site is to introduce you to a small, but important, area of remnant native bushland in the heart of the Capricorn Coast. Within this area is a complex of coastal vegetation types, including foredune communities, mangroves, beach scrub/littoral rainforest, melaleuca swamp, and eucalyptus woodlands with native grasses.
The care of Lammermoor Native Gardens is a collaboration between Rockhampton Regional Council and a volunteer community group called Rem Veg, an abbreviation of Livingstone Remnant Vegetation Study Group.
The site contains the two basic sections you see below.
 
     
  Lammermoor Native Gardens  
 
 
This section will take you on a tour of the area, you will find links to pages with detailed information about the different vegetation zones found in the gardens. The complex of vegetation zones in the relatively small area at Lammermoor means a visitor can readily grasp the relationship between plants, soil and topography in one location.
Extensive walking tracks have been put in to allow the public access to these natural bush areas. The link below will introduce you to these walking tracks and from there the successive links will take you on a tour of Lammermoor Native Gardens.

Plants and birds found at Lammermoor
 
In each section we have included photos and information about some of the flora and fauna you may see during your visit. In the Rem Veg section there are also links to a full list of plants and a list of birds found at Lammermoor.
 
 
     
  Rem Veg: History and Archives  
 
 
Much of the work of Rem Veg has been the study of native plant species in our area and the publication of the results for future reference. Today RemVeg is primarily involved with the ongoing maintenance, revegetation and improvement of the west side of Lammermoor and now the development of the east side by installing a track and removing weeds to allow the marvellous vegetation to be seen by the community, schools and visitors
The link below will take you to this section where you will find links to Rem Veg history, archives, herbarium, seed bank and community nursery.

Volunteers
 
Since 1994 nearly 300 Rem Veg volunteers have contributed over 22,000 hours of work in the collection and recording of data, rehabilitation of remnant vegetation, working in the community nursery and seed bank, and helping to inform the community of the value of local native vegetation. New volunteers are always welcome, if after browsing this site you feel that you may be able to put in a few hours per week on one of the projects we undertake please contact us for more information.

  Another Rem Veg project
 
   
 
In the first half of 2013 Rem Veg undertook an extensive invasive vines clearing project in the Pacific Heights area. For a synopsis of the project follow the link below.
