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 help reinstate the alluvial floodplain that suffered topsoil loss and deposition (redistribution) over the property. The landholder is progressively re-establishing a working farm but has to carry out another estimated 30 hours of earthworks in order to be able to plant a crop and establish ground cover before the next wet season. This will help protect against further soil loss and associated effects on water quality.


This project will:
  • return productivity to a flood affected farm
  • improve water quality in Blackfellow Creek.
