Weeds Action Fund

The Tasmanian Weeds Action Fund (WAF) is a $5 million Tasmanian Government initiative, funded for five years from 2018-19. The funds provided by the state government will be invested with farmers and other community organisations to tackle weeds that are impacting valuable agricultural and environmental assets.

The WAF aims to improve the productive value of agricultural land and protect Tasmania’s natural values by removing the harmful effects of priority weeds.

Stock access to waterways is one of the largest contributors to pathogen loads in the greater estuary catchment.

Tamar Action Grants

As part of the River Health Action Plan – Catchment Works Program, Tamar Action Grants are available to support eligible landholders to improve waterway health, by restricting stock access to waterways and improving effluent management on dairy farms.

Projects can be staged over the five year life of the program and can include multiple sites. Eligible activities are those identified by the Launceston City Deal as providing significant potential improvements in water quality in the kanamaluka/Tamar estuary, such as:

  • waterway fencing and revegetation
  • provision of alternative stock water
  • stock crossings
  • improved effluent management.
