Lota Creek Info

“Lota Creek is a small coastal waterway which divides Lota from its neighbouring suburb of ransome.

The 18 square kilometres of catchment area is a complex mixture of bushland, wetland and tidal systems, rural land surrounding the creek and estuarine systems and a foreshore dominated by urban development.

Lota Creek is fed by several tributaries having their source in the suburbs of Gumdale and Manly West.

The native vegetation of the catchment area ranges from Melaleuca and Eucalypt forest in the upper reaches to mangroves and melalueca and other wetland habitats in the lower sections.

These environments have been identified as important for the native animals and the seal life of Moreton Bay.

Urban development has been significant in the catchment of Lota Creek.”

Why I love Lota

I reside on the low lying land, that is in the corner of Lota Creek and the “western banks of Waterloo Bay” (http://seagrasswatch.org/moreton_bay_archived_data.html#LT2).  I aim to capture, explore, research and document this majestic suburb within the following weeks.  I want to share with you why I love my suburb.

As explained by http://www.queenslandplaces.com.au/lota; Lota is a bayside suburb of Brisbane; it is situated south of Wynnum and is 16 km east of the city centre.  Its southern boundary is a wetland along Lota Creek.

For a visual perception of Lota’s layout; hit on this link: https://maps.google.com.au/maps?q=map+of+lota&ie=UTF-8&hq=&hnear=0x6b915e3bef0cfa33:0x502a35af3de8f20,Lota+QLD&gl=au&ei=sownU-3HGe3QiAfApoHgDg&ved=0CDcQ8gEwAA
