Of some 2,000 natural wetlands in the Goulburn Broken area, only three in the Broken catchment have infrastructure that connect them to receive environmental water: Black Swamp, Kinnairds Wetland and Moodie Swamp. Kinnairds Wetland (96 ha) and Black Swamp (16.5 ha) are red gum swamps near Numurkah. Moodie Swamp is a 180 ha cane grass wetland adjacent to Broken Creek at Waggarandall that provides excellent breeding habitat for brolga.
Wetlands in this region continue to be important places for Traditional Owners and their Nations. The Registered Aboriginal Parties (RAP) in the region are the Yorta Yorta Nation Aboriginal Corporation and the Taungurung Clans Aboriginal Corporation. Representatives from the RAPs were engaged during the preparation of the Broken wetlands seasonal watering proposal.
