Lagoon Creek

Lagoon Creek Catchment Landcare Group
 Lagoon Creek
In early November 1999 a group of adjoining landholders in the upper Lagoon Creek catchment held a meeting to investigate the possibility of forming a landcare group. A steering committee was formed, and in late November all landholders in the catchment area were invited to a meeting to look at the issues of concern to them, and to the catchment as a whole.
At this meeting, the landholders decided to develop a catchment action plan to address the priority issues of the catchment. 
The Lagoon Creek is a non-permanent drainage system, rising in the hills about 25 kilometres north of Oakey. The creek runs south west towards Jondaryan, where after crossing the Warrego Highway in the township the water flows west to the floodplain and spreads out, eventually ending in Oakey Creek south of Bowenville.
Land types vary from scrubby ridges to undulating country mostly comprised of rich scrub soil. There are some pockets of lower quality loamy areas throughout the area.
The land is primarily used for agricultural purposes. Rural industries involve:
Grain growing
Beef cattle grazing
Beef cattle feedlots
Alpaca breeding
Eucalypts for cut-flower and bud production
