Billabong Creek Makeover: Billabong Creek is getting a $150,000 makeover at Lake Endeavour. The restoration work follows the 2016 Lake Endeavour Dam safety upgrades in which the dam wall was reinforced to both strengthen the dam and increase its capacity. Waterways downstream were affected, and while environmental remediation was undertaken, extreme weather events have caused additional damage to the creek. Remediation works include excavation to correct slopes, installation of rock erosion barriers, redressing and seeding disturbed soil with appropriate seed and tubestock, as well as restoring the access track.
