RIV19 Campaspe River at English Bridge Reserve

This Fluker Post is installed at a popular public recreational area for campers, anglers, swimmers and kayakers along the Campaspe River at Barnadown. It is a site of past willow removal (2002) and a potential site of future riverbank rehabilitation on the opposite bank. Restricting livestock access to riverbanks enables plants to regenerate naturally, reduces input of dirt and faeces, and creates a filter for runoff from adjacent farmland. Protecting and enhancing the riverbank with native vegetation will improve the environmental and aesthetic value of this site. The Barnadown stream gauge located within the stream channel is currently a barrier for the movement of native fish such as murray cod and golden perch, restricting their available habitat range and ability to swim upstream to spawn their eggs. Future modification of this structure will hopefully enable our native fish to complete their lifecycle and see their numbers increase. This project was funded as part of the Victorian government’s $222 million investment over four years to improve the health of waterways and catchments.
