Monaro Riparian Rehabilitation Project

South East Local Land Services is offering incentives of up to $10,000 to land managers for projects that protect and rehabilitate riparian corridors in the Snowy Monaro Regional Local Government Areas. This project is funded by Catchment Action NSW.

Riparian protection projects

Riparian protection projects assist land managers to manage their riparian areas in a way that improves water quality and promotes healthy, biodiverse and productive systems. These projects involve the creation of buffers along rivers, creeks, permanent and non-permanent waterways through the construction of fences and establishment of native vegetation.

Assistance can be provided for the cost of fencing materials, native plants and alternate water sources.


For a project to be eligible any new fencing will need to be constructed a minimum of 20m from the top of the bank and native trees and shrubs will need to be established where absent. Stock will need to be excluded from the area to allow native vegetation to establish or regenerate naturally, after which the area will need to be managed sustainably.

Activities supported
Financial assistance may be provided for:

  • standard fencing materials
  • native plant tubestock
  • contributions towards alternative stock water systems.

Financial assistance will not be provided for:

  • boundary fences
  • earthworks
  • pest animal control.
