Landholders

The BCCA‘s approach to improving sustainable land management for the Burnett region is primarily focussed on partnering with and empower landholders.

In addition to workshops, field days, educational resources and advocacy, the BCCA has brokered funding for over 1000 onground projects with financial support from government and non government investors.

On this page you will find a range of resources particularly provided to Burnett region landholders.
