Currambene and Moona Moona Creek

Currambene and Moona Moona Creeks Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan

Shoalhaven City Council has engaged WMAwater to assist with the preparation of the Currambene & Moona Moona Creeks Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan.

The Risk Management Study and Plan follows from the Flood Study, completed in 2006, which identified the existing flooding behaviour in the Curramabene Creek and Moona Moona Creek catchments.  The purpose of this Risk Management Study and Plan is to identify and recommend appropriate actions to manage flood risks in the catchments.

This information provides an introduction to the Risk Management Study and Plan and informs you of its objectives.


Community Workshop Presentation

On the evening of Tuesday 26 August 2014, Council held a community workshop at the Huskisson Community Centre to discuss the progress of the study and to receive feedback from the community regarding the proposed options.  The workshop was well received by those who attended.


Consultants WMAwater provided a 30 minute presentation which was followed by questions and discussion with Council staff and the Consultants from those in attendance.  A copy of the presentation slides and a link to a video link of the presentation are provided below.

The Study Area

Currambene and Moona Moona Creeks flow into Jervis Bay to the north and to the south of Huskisson.  The Currambene Creek catchment has an area of 160km², while the Moona Moona Creek catchment has an area of 28km2.

Flooding from these creeks has the potential to inundate properties and areas in the vicinity of the Huskisson, Vincentia, Myola and Woollamia townships.  To account for this, the study area will reach as far upstream as the Princes Highway on Currambene Creek, down to the ocean.


Both Currambene Creek and Moona Moona Creek are estuarial in their lower reaches, with Currambene Creek being tidal to as far upstream as “The Falls” situated near the Princes Highway.



During the Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan process, consultation will be undertaken with the community in order to establish a comprehensive list of management options.

In addition to the Questionnaire that was circulated in early 2014, you will have further opportunities to comment on the direction of the project during the public exhibition periods of the Draft Risk Management Study and Plan, as well as a series of community workshops conducted by Council and WMAwater.

Any comments received during the workshops or received in writing will be taken into account before finalisation of the study and plan.
