Overview

In 2019 the Victorian Government appointed the Barwon River Ministerial Advisory Committee to inform new protections for the Barwon catchment, including the Barwon, Leigh, Moorabool and Yarrowee Rivers. The advisory committee undertook a community-led approach to deliver a discussion paper and recommendations to government.

In response, the Victorian Government is now developing a new Action Plan for the Rivers of the Barwon to ensure these waterways can thrive and be enjoyed as a natural treasure for many years to come. The Action Plan will be released in late 2020.
