About CCG

The Cape to Cape Catchments Group (CCG) is an independent not-for-profit organisation.

In partnership with the community, we coordinate a range of natural resource management projects across the Margaret River Region of Western Australia extending from Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin.

Our work is vital to the ongoing social, economic and environmental well-being of our region and our community.

CCG’s Vision                                               

‘The Margaret River Region is a haven for people and nature’

CCG’s Motivation

‘To inspire and assist our community to protect and enhance the special environment that sustains our lifestyles, livelihoods and well-being’

CCG’s Focus

The Cape to Cape Catchments Group (CCG) is one of six sub-regional natural resource management groups operating in the south west of Western Australia. We work in partnership with the South West Catchments Council, Gondwana Link, local and State agencies, industry, community groups, landowners and the community.

Since its inception in November 2002, CCG has undertaken significant work to understand, protect and improve the environment of the Margaret River Region. In collaboration with many stakeholders, the group has coordinated an integrated program of activities including planning, monitoring, research, on-ground action, awareness raising, education and capacity building.

Initially focusing on rivers and streams, our focus has expanded progressively outwards to encompass protection of biodiversity values throughout the forests, farmlands and townships of the region.

CCG’s People


CCG has an open membership with currently over 350 members including individuals, community groups, landowners, local businesses, local and State government agencies. We keep in touch through our website, facebook page and regular Streamlines Newsletters which provide updates on events, participation and contribution opportunities and project outcomes.

Over the years CCG has received funding and support to work on projects that protect our special region from State and Federal grants programs, the Shire of Augusta Margaret River, City of Busselton, Lotterywest and South West Catchments Council (SWCC). Our community and local businesses are also key supporters, donating money, time and services for schools programs, events and on-ground projects.

Staff and Management Committee

CCG’s day-to-day activities are delivered by a small group of part-time professional staff.

Our governance and project delivery is overseen by a Management Committee of up to eight volunteers who are passionate in achieving CCG’s vision of sustaining the Margaret River region as a haven for people and nature.


 With support from the community, the Shire and our State and Federal Governments, CCG will work to ensure this precious place retains its extraordinary natural and lifestyle attractions in the face of a growing population and changing climate by:

  • building powerful alliances of like-minded individuals and groups, and
  • playing an active and influential role to make this happen.
