Wollombi Brook Rehabilitation Project

Broke Rehabilitation Project 1

Hunter Local Land Services (HLLS) are working in partnership with Broke Bulga Landcare Group and up to 15 landholders occupying a section of the Wollombi Brook at Broke to improve the condition and health of the Brook.

Project activities include weed control, re-establishing native vegetation species, addressing erosion and where necessary fencing and structural works.

The Wollombi Brook Rehabilitation Project is supported by funding provided through the NSW Environmental Trust and Hunter Local Land Services. Additional project partners are Bulga Coal and Singleton Council.

Through this project, Broke Schools Enviro Day at McNamara Park has been prepared and involves Broke and Milbrodale Public Schools. Due to Covid-19, this event had to be postponed in 2020, though is expected to be held March/April 2021. The event includes several activities students will participate in to learn more about the Brook, habitat, water quality, riparian areas, local animals and waste minimisation and diversion.

The below newsletters aim to keep participating landholders as well as interested community members informed of project activities as they progress:
