We have plenty of little ducklings following the adults along the footpaths and across roads around Marina Boulevard at the moment. Please take care when driving as they are often hard to spot standing in the shadows at the roads edge. Likewise the Plover chicks are very difficult to see as they dart across […]
You may have noticed that some of the street trees (Tuckeroo) in the estate have developed a black sooty mould. Sooty mould grows on the sugar secretion from aphids and scale. This issue has been reported to MBRC and a treatment program will commence in August to attend to the matter. Firstly the pest will […]
It might be Pandanus Dieback. One of the north coast’s iconic plants, the coastal Pandanus tree Pandanustectorius, is under local threat from dieback caused by a flatid insect known as the Pandanus planthopper jamella australiae. The planthoppers exude honeydew; this encourages mould growth and rotting of terminal growth points. MBRC treated the Pacific Harbour landscape pandanus in June […]
Further path cleaning is taking place throughout the parks and walkways during August.

Is there a Bio Detention Basin near your home? Do you know how they work? It takes three years before these basins are fully established in the MBRC area. The basins are designed to fill up with rain water and treat the storm water prior to it being discharged into our waterways. […]
When adding lights to your home, whether permanent or temporary, please look at how it may affect your neighbours. This can mean across the canal, across the road and on either side. Christmas lights look great, but not all year around and not if they are blinking into somebodies bedroom. Please be considerate.
Public gardens, Parks and Vacant lots are becoming dumping grounds with some residents tipping grass clippings in gardens and throwing palm leaves and garden rubbish on vacant lots and in public parks. MBRC are very concerned at the increase within Pacific Harbour as this can build up and create a fire hazard and a breeding […]
Did your property come with a Livistona Palm? How lucky you are! They are a beautiful looking palm and being of a substantial size would set you back a large amount of money if you had to purchase these yourself for your landscaping. We have added some links below […]
A big thank you to those residents who are helping the gardens to survive through the very very dry period by providing a little bit of extra water to the community gardens near their houses. The gardens are suffering terribly from the lack of rain and the Council and PHRCA are trying to provide watering […]
