Friends of Redbill Point Conservation Area
We see this reserve as an important natural & cultural asset to be protected and conserved for the community. We assist with a variety of tasks from cleaning facilities, weeding, fundraising and the task of opening and closing gates to the reserve. Join us in caring for this community area.
Where we work
Redbill Point Conservation Area is a 34.2 ha coastal reserve that was declared on the 24th April 1989. It is located on the western shore of the Tamar River, just north of Beauty Point and approximately 50km north west of Launceston, Tasmania.
The reserve is very popular and is used for a variety of recreational activities, including fishing, boating, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, walking, windsurfing, dog exercise and is a popular bar-b-que and picnic area for locals an visitors.
What we do
The group sees the reserve as an important natural & cultural asset to be protected and conserved for the community.
To accomplish this we participate in, plan, promote and facilitate the sustainable and practical management of the Beauty Point Coastal environment in partnership with Parks and Wildlife.
The group holds regular working bees to mow the grass, remove weeds, re-vegetate damaged or dying flora areas and monitor the coastal environment.
We manage public access to the reserve and open and close the entrance gates via a roster system of volunteers. Clean the public bar-b- que areas and manage and remove any litter and garbage.
We aim to promote and encourage stewardship in the general community and hope to soon organise social activities for this purpose for the whole community.
We hold fund raising events to help fund small projects and improvements within the reserve.
