Terrain was funded by the Queensland government to improve water quality in the Wet Tropics whilst increasing opportunities for traditional owners to work on country. Five projects were funded with four traditional owner groups over 12 months. These projects formed part of a broader package of water quality and weed management projects for traditional owners and community groups valued at $125,139. The projects improved riparian and wetland areas, but also improved capacity through training in weed identification, chemical use and first aid.

Five traditional owner water quality projects valued at $57,139 were awarded to four groups, Jabalbina, Jaragun, Burungu and Northern Skills Alliance, exceeding the contracted target by two groups and 15 ha.
