Frog Hollow Wetland – Gilgandra

Rod had an opportunity to visit Frog Hollow wetland in Gilgandra recently that Storm designed some years ago

It has been a very wet winter followed by high rainfalls in September so there has been regular flooding occurring in the district.  Frog Hollow wetland functions as a stormwater water quality improvement feature as well as providing habitat for amphibians and avifauna.

The trees are now maturing on the south side and the pathway encourages visitors by foot.  The hollow is quite serene and welcoming for the community and visitors however the frogs were very vocal in their appreciation of the wetland.  There was quite a chorus occurring on the day even though heavy inflows were causing local flooding and extended inundation with the frogs apparently finding plenty of friendly areas to rest.

It is great to see our project years after construction and it is heartening to see they are well loved by community and Council.  Well done Gilgandra and a big pat on the back to Central West Catchment Management Authority, particularly Diana Kureen, for making this happen.
