Iron Cove Creek (Dobroyd Canal)

We are investigating a section of Iron Cove Creek, also known as Dobroyd Canal, as it is in need of repair. This work will help maintain the stormwater system and protect the local environment.

We are looking at repairing the creek by replacing the concrete walls with natural looking banks made of rocks and native plants. This method is called naturalisation and has been used in waterways across Sydney to improve their health and character.

  • Look at the early concept design

    Cooks river 1

    You can now look at the early concept design which proposes features like:

    • creek banks made of rocks and native plants
    • outdoor educational and seating area
    • two lookouts
    • pedestrian paths
    • a winding sandstone section in the centre of the creek base
    • potential opportunity for a wetland
    • some banks turned into salt marsh areas, a type of endangered ecological community historically found near waterways in Sydney. Find out more about salt marsh here.

    Tell us what you think by filling out this survey, leaving a comment or marking your idea on a map.

    After consultation we'll send out a newsletter to local residents and update this page about the feedback we receive.
