Raglan Station is a 16,919 hectare property sharing frontage onto Raglan Creek, a tributary flowing directly into the Fitzroy Delta. A highly erosive gully was present on the property, measuring depths of up to 10 metres and widths of up to 20 metres in some areas. The entire length of the gullied area spanned 241 metres. Fitzroy Basin Association Inc. (FBA), with funding through the Australian Government’s Reef Trust II Program, undertook a three-pronged approach to addressing gully erosion in the latter months of 2018.
Belmont is a 3260ha property 37km north of Rockhampton on the Fitzroy River and is owned by CQUniversity. It provides an ideal environment for research into livestock production in the tropics and sub-tropics of northern Australia.
FBA has worked with Belmont on management practice programs aimed to improve the environmental management of agricultural waterways, reducing the loads of sediment, nutrients and pesticides entering the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) lagoon.
