Numinbah Hall Riparian Restoration Project
Numinbah Valley

The Numinbah Hall Riparian Restoration Project raised awareness of the importance of riparian vegetation in controlling erosion, maintaining water quality and providing wildlife habitat. 

In a collaborative process, a high profile local site was revegetated using carefully selected native plant species. The project removed environmental weeds over a two-hectare site next to the community hall in Numinbah Valley, and planted approximately 2,500 rare and threatened native plants across the site.

The project also helped to stabilise a steep gully which flows directly into the Nerang River, minimising erosion and potentially improving water quality in the river.
