The restoration project is the culmination of many years’ work including the installation of new infrastructure which allowed water to be delivered in 2019–20.

Native plants including river red gums, common rush and waters ribbons have responded well to the watering event after many dry years.

Monitoring of the project revealed the presence of endangered southern bell frogs, not recorded at the site since 2010–11.
