Snowy Creek Weir Fishway Passage

The Snowy Creek Weir was constructed across Snowy Creek in the 1970’s to provide a swimming hole for the local community. The weir is recognised as an important asset to the local community, drawing tourists who make use of the swimming area and complementary facilities and services. However, the Snowy Creek Weir is also known to impact on the movements of fish within Snowy Creek. Provision of fish passage through the Snowy Creek weir structure would allow fish passage through the entire Snowy Creek system as there are no other man-made barriers present.
