Funding available for Far South Coast landscape improvements

July 2021

Sonia Bazzacco, Senior Land Services Officer, Moruya.

The Local Land Services team on the Far South Coast (Bega Valley and Eurobodalla) are seeking expressions of interest from land managers wanting to improve, protect and enhance waterways, riparian zones and existing stands of native vegetation on their properties over the 2021/2022 financial year.

These projects will build on the projects implemented across the Far South Coast in previous years and will seek to further increase the connectivity and biodiversity of the area and to improve water quality. This work is particularly important as the area continues to recover from the 2019/20 bushfires.

Priority activities for grant funding include:

  • installation of fencing to exclude stock from waterways and saltmarshes
  • revegetation of riparian zones (land near the edges of waterways) to improve bank stability, reduce run-off and improve habitat for native wildlife
  • protection, enhancement and improvement of remnant native vegetation and wildlife corridors for threatened species such as glossy black cockatoo, threatened large forest owls, koalas and Australian grayling.

These projects will be carried out by South East Local Land Services via support from the NSW Government’s Marine Estate Strategy and the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.

To find out more or to register an expression of interest please contact Sonia Bazzacco on or call the Bega office on 1300 795 299.
