Summary

The broader project will assist flood affected landholders identified through SEQC, Council and Regional industry groups to return to production and improve the natural resilience of the waterways.

This project will:
  • stabilise approximately 730m of creek bank in the Upper Blackfellow Creek catchment
  • help protect essential farm infrastructure
  • assist in the continuation of agricultural production by improving access and allowing farm practices such as mustering to be conducted over part of the property
  • increase the resilience of the enterprise to withstand future flood events and take initial steps to reinstate a viable cattle enterprise
  • improve water quality in Blackfellow Creek
  • oversee 730m of creek bank stabilisation engineering works.
