The Hollands Creek Demonstration Reach is nestled within the Tatong Valley in North East Victoria. The project supports the Regional River Health Strategy and Murray-Darling Basin Authority Native Fish Strategy, by working with local community groups and landholders to target a range of primary assets within the Hollands system. The demonstration reach focuses on protecting and expanding suitable habitat for Macquarie Perch populations, an endangered native fish. The program has seen a range of works implemented, including fencing, revegetation, pest plant control, habitat creation, monitoring and community activities.
Demonstration reaches are a key theme of the Native Fish Strategy, and reveal how restoration of our native fish communities and the rehabilitation of the health of our waterways can be achieved through the integration of multiple management actions, strong community involvement, and monitoring and evaluation
