About the Project

This project improved public access along the Wimmera River in Horsham.

Wimmera CMA has taken the lead in engaging with partners to facilitate the creation of an iconic walking track and public access area, contributing to regional tourism. Suitable fencing has reduced the number of dog attacks on sheep other urban interface problems.

This project emphasises the importance in partnerships in making changes that could not happen without collaborative efforts from a number of groups.
