Rehabilitation of The Cut Completed

Wednesday 4 June, 2014

The planned rehabilitation of the location locally known as ‘The Cut’, near Eagle Point, has been completed.

A recent joint working bee by Friends of the Gippsland Lakes and Parks Victoria saw rocks placed along the old fence line and three hundred new trees planted.

A new interpretation sign has been installed, and a contractor was hired to lay gravel on the walking track and car park.

Vehicles were being driven over the area after the original fence was illegally cut and removed. This was causing damage to the area’s fragile silt deposits and native vegetation from erosion and soil compaction.

Vehicle access to The Cut is to the end of Riverbank Road and there is walking access to the nearby popular fishing locations.

The Friends group received a Healthy Parks Healthy People grant from Parks Victoria to rehabilitate the site which is situated on the Northern Mitchell River silt jetties.

These are deltas of large silt deposits which form at the mouth of a river and become long narrow land masses over time. The Mitchell River silt jetties are among the longest in the world.
