Geology, soils and ecosystems
Our region’s underlying geology, soils and ecosystems are intricately connected and are the foundation of our diverse landscapes.
Together they also underpin the productivity of our agricultural lands, shape our lifestyles and provide homes for native plants and animals. Healthy soils and ecosystems are critical to our regional tourism and primary production industries which support our local, Queensland and Australian economies.
