THE VOICE OF THE LAKE
Revive Lake Cathie is an advocacy group formed for the single purpose to achieve sustainable health and amenity of the Lake Cathie/Lake Innes Estuarine System, particularly after the drought, floods and 2019-2020 'black summer' fires.
Lake Cathie/Lake Innes Estuarine System used to be the biggest inland waterway on the coast of Australia. Over the years, construction and man-made attempts to control the flow and levels of the Lake and Lagoon have led to dramatic shifts in the water levels.
These changing water levels have resulted in frequent contamination of the lake water, which becomes filled with runoff and is exposed to acid sulphate and ferrous iron. These surfactants severely contaminate the water, making it uninhabitable for all wildlife and dangerous to people.
It's a hazardous cycle that keeps happening. At Revive Lake Cathie, our efforts are focused on research-backed, long-term solutions to restore the Lake for wildlife and people alike.
Learn more about Lake Cathie/Lake Innes Estuarine System and our efforts to restore the health and safety of the Lake.
Our members and volunteers actively advocate for real, effective long-term solutions to bring back the health and amenity of Lake Cathie/Lake Innes Estuarine System. We work with estuarine professionals and science experts to support an agenda that aims to future-proof the Lake.
Our work includes educating the local and outside community on the health of the Lake, collecting data on the Lake's estuary baselines, and supporting key action efforts proven to improve the Lake's health and much more.

Our volunteers put in the activism and effort to restore the Lake not only for the benefit of local wildlife, but for humans to enjoy as well. We rely heavily on our volunteers to conduct reach-out, develop and achieve our agenda plans, and conduct necessary tests and research to further life-proof our Lake.
