The Toondah Harbour development, costing $1.3 billion, at Redland Bay in Brisbane’s Moreton Bay – a Ramsar-protected wetland – will have significant impacts on many vulnerable species, including the harbour’s migratory birds, the endangered Eastern Curlew and its turtles, dugongs and koalas.

It promises, to be an exciting new, modern coastal village, incorporating a vibrant harbourside precinct, foreshore parklands, and waterfront homes. Wetlands or development set to transform Redlands.

90 minutes for you to ask questions on the proposal, plans, environmental impact, sea level rise issues, and community engagement on Redlands shoreline. It will be a Q&A style forum with you posting questions on notice and asking them from the floor.
