Gully Erosion Case Study

Raglan Station - Fitzroy

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

Carbon Farming Flyer

Carbon Farming for central Queensland Landholders

Carbon farming is any agricultural practice that increases or preserves carbon in soil and vegetation. Scientists have observed that since the industrial revolution there is more carbon in the atmosphere. There are many benefits to be gained through carbon farming including increased productivity, income diversification, profitability and a healthier planet. By working with FBA, landholders have an opportunity to implement practices that increase and preserve carbon in plants and soils. The investment in carbon credits accrued through carbon farming is emerging as a priority for key industries such as transport, mining and aviation. The carbon market is providing a unique opportunity for landholders to improve their land condition as well as gain returns on productive, unproductive or unused land.

Land managers band together to control wild dogs

Land managers band together to control wild dogs

In late 2013, Taroom grazier Don Lethbridge was experiencing significant wild dog attacks on his cattle, as were many other graziers in the area. He knew that coordinating wild dog control campaigns across multiple properties would not just be good for him—it would benefit everyone.

Flood recovery Starting from scratch in the Dawson

Flood recovery Starting from scratch in the Dawson

The downside of flat farming landscapes is that when a major flood occurs, inundation is uniform and very soon every inch of the farm is submerged, completely destroying crops and washing away precious soil. This is what happened on two properties owned by Debbie and Mike Austin. Harcourt, which is 1575ha in size and the 730 ha Riverland, are neighbouring properties on the banks of the Dawson River in the Fitzroy Basin.
