The Gympie Regional Council has identified eight Queensland Government-owned land parcels in the Mary Valley, in the state's south-east, that could be used for community projects.

The State Government is considering transferring land it acquired for the failed Traveston Crossing dam project to the council to be used for community projects.

Council has identified eight sites it is interested in - six at Kandanga and two on the Mary River at Walkers and Traveston Crossing.

Council is considering one site in Kandanga for use as a sport and recreation precinct, including the relocation of the flood-prone Kandanga Bowls Club.

Another is at Imbil and could be used as a safe area to canoe on the Mary River and Yabba Creek.

The Government plans to transfer ownership to council which can then manage the land or negotiate tenure with community groups.

The proposal will be discussed at today's ordinary council meeting.
