As far back as 2000, the small creek towards the eastern boundary of Bilby Downs exhibited a tendency to erode during moderate rain events. This took place at a point where the water descends approximately 6 metres over a distance of only 12 metres before emptying into the Lachlan. The following is a set of photographs with commentaries showing steps taken to mitigate erosion in this part of the creek. This project was partially funded through a Federal Government Caring for Our Country Community Environment Action Grant to Hovells Creek Landcare.
