The Far East Community Blackberry Action Group was formed by Landcare groups in the region in 2008 in response to concerns about blackberry infestations in the area.



The Group received funding for a 3-year pilot project to reduce blackberry in the Goongerah Valley. This remote area was targeted for its proximity to rivers and parks of national significance and the ecological importance and social value of the region.

Initial efforts focused on raising awareness of the ecological damage and productivity losses that blackberry causes. This involved relevant agencies communicating their efforts toward managing blackberry on public land and a concerted effort by the Far East Community Blackberry Action Group to liaise with private land managers.

The group is exploring interest for further expansion across the region. For more up-to-date information on the FEGBAG, please refer to the most recent Annual Report
