The Hattah Lakes icon site forms part of the 48,000 ha Hattah–Kulkyne National Park. Located in Victoria, this icon site includes over 20 semipermanent freshwater lakes that support river red gum communities and a variety of native plants and animals. They are also important breeding places for waterbirds.
Returning Water to Hattah Lakes Episode 1 and 2 look at the environmental works undertaken to benefit one of The Living Murray's icon sites. The MDBA has worked collaboratively with a range of organisations and individuals to improve the environmental health of the lakes, including Mallee CMA, Parks Victoria and Goulburn Murray Water.
Under The Living Murray program, the Hattah Lakes icon site is provided with environmental water to help achieve its ecological objectives.
