The Mittagong Creek Rehabilitation Project is a long-term plan to rehabilitate one of the most significant and treasured waterways in the Southern Highlands.
The project is guided by the Mittagong Creek Riparian Management Plan and funded principally through Council's Environment Levy and project partners including South-East Local Land Services.
Between Old South Road and Bowral Street
Rock ramp: one of 3 in-stream structures constructed along Mittagong Creek in 2015, between Old South Road and Bowral Street.
Fencing was installed in 2015 to exclude cattle from the creek and reduce erosion.

Holly Street section, between Bowral Street & Shepherd Street
Woody weeds and blackberry were removed in 2015, along a 500m stretch of creek between Bowral Street and Shepherd Street. Revegetation work is planned for later in 2015.
This section receives significant pedestrian traffic, so signage was installed to keep locals informed of ongoing works.
A large quantity of willows and black alder were removed from the waterway between Old South Rd & Bowral Street.
