RIV18 Campaspe River, Kyneton Walk

This Fluker Post is located beside a popular fishing hole along the Kyneton River Walk. This is a future site of willow removal along both the opposite private riverbank and Kyneton River Walk managed by Macedon Ranges Shire Council. Crack Willow is a Weed of National Significance. Compared to the native vegetation that Australian river ecosystems have evolved with over time, the willows provide too much shade for the native water bugs that provide food for fish and platypus. Their copious leaves, shed each autumn, rot in the river and dramatically effect nutrient and dissolved oxygen levels within the waterbody. The willows will be cut at ground level and native plants established. By the time the new plants grow, the willows stumps (left in place to hold the riverbanks together) will rot away. With ongoing weed maintenance and supplementary tree planting, this stretch of river will become a beautiful place enjoyed by both the community and wildlife. 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.
