Jindera Wetlands: A place for people, plants and water bugs


The Jindera Wetlands are located on the south-west corner of Jindera’s Recreation Ground. One hundred and fifty years ago, this site was originally used by school children to graze their horse whilst at school. Today, the Jindera Wetlands trap the nutrients from stormwater before it reaches the local creeks, which run into Bowna Creek then eventually to the Hume Weir.
