Understories 
Landcare led Bushfire Recovery Project
This Landcare Led Bushfire Recovery Project was supported by the Australian Government’s Bushfire Recovery Program for Wildlife and their Habitat.

Understories was a community project fostering natural and community resilience and minimises the risk, impact and consequences of fire disasters in the rainforests of South-East Queensland (QLD). 

Through an arts-based community engagement approach local stories have been brought together which highlight shared values and define ways to minimise the risk, impact, and consequences of future fire disasters. Understories is the first step to collectively protect the ecological values of the natural areas and mitigate the risk of bushfire.

Portraits and Stories

The combined stories of some of Tallebudgera Valley’s long term residents provide a snapshot of the past and their legacy offer critical information in bushfire resilience.

The stories are appealing as they share community resilience and knowledge of the human transitions and changing ecology of the Valley.
