This project forms part of a broader project to assist flood affected landholders identified through SEQ Catchments’, Council, Regional industry groups, and River Improvement Trust staff to return to production and improve the natural resilience of the waterways.

The 8.45ha property is bounded by the upper reaches of Warrill Creek, which has its headwaters in the Main Range National Park. The volume and velocity of run-off from the 24-hour major storm event on the Main Range destroyed the riparian fencing, stripped topsoil from the riparian areas down to a gravel base, widened the creek and destroyed much of the natural vegetation along the creek.

The landholder aims to clear the fence line of debris and reinstate 737m of riparian fencing in a partnership arrangement with her neighbour on the opposite side of the creek.

It is proposed to utilise and coordinate the services of the same fencing and earthworks contractor to clear debris and carry out the fencing activities on this property and the neighbour’s property.

The landholder is also committed to treating the weeds and re-vegetating sections of creek bank with native species (e.g. callistemon and lomandra).


This project will:
  • improve water quality in Warrill Creek by reinstating riparian fencing and re-vegetating riparian areas.
