Guttrum and Benwell forests

Project Contact: Tim Shanahan

We are investigating environmental works projects that aim to deliver environmental outcomes to Guttrum and Benwell forests under the Murray-Darling Basin Plan, using less water.


Gunbower truly is the Kakadu of the south.

Between its internationally recognised wetland, its towering forests and a creek the community loves, it is a landmark for the entire nation.

Protecting it, repairing it and building in resilience is a task that stretches across agencies and across all levels of community and government.

Loddon River

Project Contact: Philip Slessar

The Loddon River flows north from the Great Dividing Range in central Victoria to the Murray River, with three main storages - Cairn Curran, Tullaroop and Laanecoorie reservoirs.

Its lower reaches are critical vegetation corridors in a landscape with only 13% of original vegetation remaining.
