Funding Categories


  1. Waterway, creek and drainage line revegetation

Revegetation of waterways, creek lines and drainage lines with high priority of creeks flowing into Ramsar listed wetlands. Funding in this area assists with fencing, revegetation, weed control and potential for volunteer assistance.

  1. Remnant vegetation protection and enhancement

Remnant vegetation is all the existing local indigenous vegetation on the Bellarine and vegetation communities. With over 95% of remnant vegetation cleared on the Bellarine, remaining indigenous vegetation is extremely important for biodiversity conservation. Funding opportunities include complementary revegetation of these areas with indigenous vegetation, fencing to protect from grazing and weed control.

  1. Vegetation corridors

Isolated pockets of remnant vegetation can be linked up by creating indigenous vegetation corridors. The creation of these bio-links guarantees an improved biodiversity by providing space for animals and plant to move through the landscape. Funding in this area assists with fencing, revegetation, weed control and potential for volunteer assistance.

  1. Protection of remnant paddock trees

Remnant paddock trees are valuable resources for wildlife, containing tree hollows which some native bird and mammal depend on for nesting. They are also distinctive of the local landscape but many trees are under pressure and reaching the end of their lives. Funds can be provided for fencing off these trees to allow natural regeneration as well as undertaking supplementary planting.

  1. Priority pest plant control on priority locations

This is for priority pest plant control on the Bellarine impacting on waterways, remnant vegetation and coastal saltmarsh habitat. All priority weeds are listed in Attachment A.

  1. Priority rabbit control - harbour removal and warren destruction around sensitive areas

This funding is for the physical removal of rabbit harbour and/or warren destruction by a contractor near waterways, creeks and drainage lines, amongst remnant vegetation and coastal saltmarsh. Please note: No government-funding program will subsidise any form of rabbit poisoning or fumigation.

The maximum grant rates available are (incl. GST):

Standard Fencing: $2.50 per metre (Fencing cost around $8/m through Contractor)

Indigenous plants: $1.00 per plant (Nursery cost: $2/plant)

Indigenous grasses: $1.00 per plant (Nursery cost: $2/plant)

Indigenous seed: up to $150 per kilogram (rate 1kg p/ha, 350g/linear km) (

Tree guards: up to $0.35 per guard

Weed control of planting sites: $0.10 per plant or up to $45 / ha




  • PLEASE NOTE:

    • No boundary fencing can be funded;

    • The funding rates quoted do not include 10% GST as this often confuses the funding payments i.e. some people can access the GST component of the grant, while others are not able to;

    • Grant rates are subject to change;

    • You may not be eligible for the maximum grant rate depending on where your property is located and how it meets the priorities of our funding provided through the State Government.
