Refreshing Rivers - Central Billabong

Refreshing Rivers - Central Billabong. A 10-year collaborative project to build on the health of the Yanco Creek System.

YACTAC have an exciting 10-year project, Refreshing Rivers - Central Billabong, which encompasses much of the Yanco Creek System, from the Yanco Creek offtake at the Murrumbidgee River, through to Wanganella swamp, NSW in the west.

Rivers are the lifeblood of inland NSW - they have enormous ecological, cultural and economic significance. River health is directly linked with the wellbeing of our regional communities and their ability to thrive.

By providing new partnerships, pathways and enduring incentives for action, Refreshing Rivers will reinvigorate river management across NSW, driving social change that leads to improved health of inland rivers sustained by industry, farmer and community action.

Refreshing Rivers Central Billabong is part of the Refreshing Rivers project, a collaboration between government, industry, research and community organisations, led by Murray Local Land Services. This project has been assisted by the New South Wales Government through its Environmental Trust.
