This project will achieve fencing for the protection of Wallam Creek as it traverses through Tilquin. A fence consisting of 2 kms of 2 barb and 4 plain wires will helpimprove water quality, reduce erosion and increase groundcover and allow for total grazing control of domestic animals. This stretch of the creek has historically been a koala habitat, but sightings have dimished during recent drought years. This is a conservation project with no grazing by sheep or cattle planned for the creek enclosure. This fencing will provide public benefit and compliment 65 kms of riparian fencing already exisiting in the northern catchment of the Wallam creek. The fencing project will stretch along the western side of Wallum Creek. These alluvial floodplains are a mixture of grey and red soil with Coolibah, rivergum and sandlewood vegetation.
