• The Johnstone River Catchment Association Inc. (JRCMA) recently completed the Johnstone Rivers Management Plan – Actions and Priorities here for the catchment’s waterways. This comprehensive plan included the North and South Johnstone Rivers and and all their tributaries and will later include the Liverpool Creek (already completed sub plan) and the future Moresby River and Maria Creek plans that drain directly to the Coral Sea. Ultimately it is hoped the neighbouring Russell River and Tully River Catchments will embrace similar planning exercises completing restoration planning for the coastal catchments between Cairns and the Cardwell Range reducing impacts on coastal communities and the Great Barrier Reef.
