The Moorabool River in the Moorabool River Reserve

People for A Living Moorabool (PALM) and Sheoaks Films have produced a film titled The River Moorabool.

This film explains why this unique river, travelling from the Wombat Forests near Ballarat to the Barwon River at Geelong, is in trouble.

The Moorabool’s health is suffering because of:

  • The increasing water use by Ballarat and Geelong
  • Intensive farming activities
  • The spread of weeds along the river and its tributaries
