    Understanding the effectiveness of riparian management interventions

    Murray Local Land Services (Murray LLS) has a long history of managing waterways and riparian zones to ensure these ecosystems remain healthy and productive for future generations.  Regular monitoring is used  to determine the effectiveness of management actions, however, often responses vary over time and at different locations. In response to this variability, Murray LLS has developed […]

    Glenelg River Restoration Project

    Over fourteen years the Project has worked with over 659 individual landholders, community groups and government agencies to help construct 1725km of fencing, planted more than half a million trees and direct seeded 796km of waterway frontage. The restoration program has also completed 2784ha of weed control, re-instated 870 pieces of large wood, opened 977km of the Glenelg river and its tributaries to fish movement and established and delivered an environmental flows entitlement.

    Dewfish Demonstration Reach

    The Dewfish Demonstration Reach is Queensland’s first Native Fish Strategy (www.finterest.com.au) Demonstration reach. It was established to demonstrate and promote what can be done to achieve a healthy river system for native fish and the greater river catchment. The reach is managed by a dedicated team at the Condamine Alliance (www.condaminealliance.com.au), who strive to achieve positive outcomes for native fish whilst engaging the community in their river.

    Rivers of Carbon - Southern Tablelands Riparian Linkages Project

    ‘Rivers of Carbon’ is an exciting new initiative working in partnership with landholders, the Lachlan Catchment Management Authority, Murrumbidgee Catchment Management Authority, and other organisations in the Southern Tablelands to link native vegetation and previously rehabilitated sites to form intact riparian corridors – creating ‘rivers of carbon’.

    Pudman Creek Protection and Restoration

    The successful re-introduction of the Southern Pygmy Perch at a new home along the Pudman Creek in New South Wales has strengthened efforts to increase the spread and survival of this threatened native fish. The Southern Pygmy Perch (Nannoperca australis), is a small, attractive native fish once found in most areas of the Murray and lower Murrumbidgee catchments in NSW. During the past 25 years they have disappeared from most of their natural range in response to habitat degradation, particularly the loss of aquatic vegetation and associated macroinvertebrates.

    Buffalo Brook

    When Biz and Lindsay Nicolson began running ‘Bonneys Plains’ in 1988, the banks of Buffalo Brook were severely eroded, there was little or no riparian vegetation, water quality was poor and there was no sign of aquatic life. Today, fencing off the stream would seem the obvious solution to the degradation. In 1986, however, the decision to exclude stock was contrary to the prevailing management practice which relied on direct waterway access for all paddocks. This project tells the story of what has happened in the 25 years since the fence went up along Buffalo Brook.

    Boorowa River Recovery

    The Boorowa catchment is characterised by farms of various sizes (from 100 ha up to 5000 ha) including rural residential holdings and small regional centres. The main town in the catchment is Boorowa with a population of 2390 (ABS 2010). The area has a long heritage of fine wool production but this has been declining due to changing terms of trade since the 1970’s, and long periods of drought (Race et.al. 2007). Poor water quality and unsustainable land management have also affected productivity and eroded the resource base for future income and livelihoods both on and off farm.
