Capricornia Catchments plays an important role in facilitating community, industry and government partnerships to achieve improved natural resource management within the Fitzroy River and coastal catchments area.

Fitzroy Basin Association (FBA)







Capricornia Catchments is a sub-regional group of the larger Fitzroy Basin Association and acts to some extent as our mother ship organisation.

Capricornia Catchments has a close working relationship with FBA who provides not only funding for Capricornia Catchments to deliver to Landholders but technical support for Capricornia Catchments staff and connection to other sub-regions in the FBA area.

Australian Government





Through Caring for our Country, including the Reef Rescue component, the Australian Government is funding Capricornia Catchments (through FBA) to deliver a range of on-ground outcomes and water quality improvements. Capricornia Catchments also benefits from various one-off grants from the Australian Government.

Queensland Government






Through Q2 Coasta and Country the Queensland Government is supporting FBA to improve community involvement in water quality issues, establish a monitoring program, and protect natural assets.

Local Government

Rockhampton Regional Council LSC Portrait_colourIssac_regional_council_logo_svg

Gladstone Regional Council





We collaborate with regional councils to provide feedback on planning, deliver projects, and raise community awareness.

Local Governments in our region are:

  • Rockhampton Regional Council (RRC). Capricornia Catchments has a Memorandum of Understanding with RRC that has been developed over the years to cement a long term partnership that aims to support and plan projects and works together that benefit the region.

Land Managers

Land Managers that work with Capricornia Catchments contribute at least 50% of the value of the project being developed on their property, and in many cases they contribute much more in both cash and in-kind.

The Community

Without dedicated volunteer driven organisations, many natural resource management projects with a wider benefit wouldn’t happen that is why we support grassroots community groups.








GrowCom works with Capricornia Catchments to promote and develop Funding projects for horticultural properties in the sub region. Grow Com project officers through support, advice and education help growers access funding incentives for on-ground works with better water quality outcomes.








AgForce’s Projects division and Training arm AgFoward offers a portfolio of field days, workshops, and correspondence courses to showcase technology and management practices and guide landholders through industry challenges.

Capricornia Catchments has supported and worked with AgForce to deliver information days to landholders in our region and looks forward to continuing this partnership into the future.
