Mt Emu Creek
Mt Emu Creek is 271km in length, is the main tributary to the Hopkins River and provides habitat to threatened species including the Growling Grass Frog, Corangamite Water Skink and Striped Legless Lizard. This project focuses on protection of priority reaches in the mid and upper catchment.
Year one of the project targeted area was the upper Mt Emu Creek north of Skipton and Trawalla Creek, while Year Two targeted the Mt Emu Creek between Darlington and Skipton was the focus.
A Waterway Action Plan (WAP) to help protect and improve the health of the waterway was developed, as were individual projects and provision of funding to successful landholders to undertake on-ground activities including fencing to exclude stock, tree planting and installing alternate stock water supply.
