Yarrawonga Urban Landcare Group

Yarrawonga Urban Landcare Group was formed in 2008. The group aims to:

  • Improve biodiversity and habitat values of public areas and wetlands throughout our town.
  • Plant local and indigenous vegetation which will attract native bird life.
  • Retain as many large native trees as possible within the urban environment to provide links between green areas.


  • The groups first project commenced in 2008 was an enchancment of plantings around a storm water basin at the local aerodrome. This project is ongoing.
  • In 2009 the group was engaged by Moira Shire Council to plant 2000 indigenous plants around the Lakeview Circuit Wetlands in Yarrawonga.
  • In 2010 Vicroads engaged the group to plant 350 plants at a roadside stop on the outskirts of Yarrawonga. In the same year we planted indigenous vegetation around a carpark in the centre of Yarrawonga.
  • 2012 saw the group commence plantings along walking  tracks within the town precinct. Revegetation of the Yarrawonga Main Channel and at Chinaman’s Island are amongst some of the group’s key sites, with regular working bees held to maintain the plantings. Everyone is welcome to get involved!
