The Sustainable Practices in the Western Burnett project aimed at working with graziers and grain growers in priority areas of the inland Burnett to improve management practices and increase landscape scale conservation.
The Sustainable Practices project was an initiative of the Burnett Mary Regional Group, funded by the Australian Government through the Caring for Our Country program and is coordinated by the Burnett Catchment Care Association in the Burnett.
The grazing component of the Sustainable Practices project provided graziers located in the priority sub-catchments of Lower Burnett River and Reid’s Creek (see map) the opportunity to improve sustainable land management practices and increase landscape scale conservation by providing property planning assistance and funding for eligible activities on your property.
The grains component of the Sustainable Practices project was aimed at improving and enhancing grains management practices, particularly in relation to soil management practices.
The priority area for the grains component, involves grain growers in the Coalstoun Lakes, Gayndah, Binjour and Mundubbera areas.
