The Currimundi Catchment comprises Currimundi Lake, two creeks, three canals and the outflow from Lake Kawana which draws its water from the Mooloolah River.
Currimundi Lake is a coastal estuary. A major natural feature of this lake is the sand plug that frequently develops at the mouth.
Currimundi Creeks have narrow riparian borders which are constantly eroding under the pressures of upstream developments.
Two groups work in cooperation and with the Sunshine Coast Council to improve the Currimundi Catchment:
Currimundi Catchment Care Group Inc. (CCCG), formed in 2001, is interested in the wellbeing of the total catchment and participates in various activities throughout the catchment.
Friends of Currimundi Lake (FOCL), formed in 1988, cares for Currimundi Catchment east of Nicklin Way, following the southern foreshores of Currimundi Lake to Currimundi Beach with Buderim Street as the southern boundary.
