About Pooh Corner

Two parcels of land for sale, SANANANDA BARRACKS and POOH CORNER. Sanananda barracks is next to the Ipswich Motorway . We are only concerned with Pooh Corner which is located between Wacol Station Rd and the train line.

Pooh Corner is a large area of natural bushland with little disturbance, within 17km of Brisbane's CBD. It contains a creek and wetland areas, and is home to many species of animals, including Brisbane last population of Eastern Grey kangaroos. It is the only large area of bushland in Brisbane's south west.

Pooh Corner is home to 26 species of animals and 16 plant species which are significant at the Federal, State and/or Local level - ie. they are rare, or vulnerable.

Below are short descriptions of some of the values of Pooh Corner. This will be updated as more information is researched.


Endangered ecosystems

EPA's Regional Ecosystem mapping shows most of the site is endangered. See Regional Ecosystem map.

Vegetation Management Regulation 2000
Schedule 1, Part


Regional ecosystem

Regional ecosystem number


Eucalyptus tereticornis woodland to open forest on alluvial plains



Eucalyptus tereticornis, Corymbia intermedia on remnant Tertiary surfaces, usually near coast. Usually deep red soils


The protection for endangered vegetation appears to be fairly strong - under the Vegetation Management Act 1999 and the Regional Vegetation Management Code for South East Queensland. (Integrated Planning Act 1997 is also relevant for designation of "assessable development.) However there may be a couple of "loopholes" which may allow clearing of these valuable ecosystems.

The Queensland Government is responsible for the protection of endangered ecosystems.
