About Kholo Enviroplan Reserve (Cameron’s Scrub)

In the suburb of Pine Mountain, next to the Brisbane River, is 158 hectares originally known as Cameron’s Scrub, but recently renamed Kholo Enviroplan Reserve.
The area supports a wide variety of bird, mammal, reptile and amphibian species and adjoins a nature refuge to the west that is owned and managed by the State Government.
Together, the reserve and the refuge protect a dry vine forest vegetation complex that has almost completely disappeared from South-East Queensland.
Some of the key species in the area include Spectacled Monarch, Rose-crowned Fruit Dove, Noisy Pitta, Lloyd’s Native Olive and Platypus.
