Riparian Works Program

The Goulburn Broken CMA works closely with the community to deliver direct on ground riparian improvement works targeting streams flowing from the Strathbogie Ranges, and supports the community to protect and enhance other priority streams and wetlands in the Goulburn Broken Catchment, as part of the State Government funded Riparian Works Program.

Incentives are available for stream-side fencing, weed control, revegetation and off-stream watering.

This program aims to improve the health of our Flagship Waterways - Seven Creeks, which contains important populations of nationally threatened Macquarie perch and trout cod, and Hughes Creek, which also supports a Macquarie perch population.

Limited funding is available for other major streams within the Strathbogie Ranges and other priority streams and wetlands in the Goulburn Broken Catchment.

Please see the table below for contact details.
