Our current projects

Ways we work within our Community

“Learning from people, planning for country”

Grazing

Extensive beef operations cover approx 85% of our region, held in about 200 individual business enterprises.

Sustainable Agriculture

The Mareeba-Dimbulah Irrigation Area powers some of the nation’s most productive and innovative tropical farming operations.

Biodiversity

The Northern Gulf is tropical savanna country at its best, with unique flora and fauna in remnant habitat.

Communities

Everything in the Gulf depends on relationships and cooperation. Community engagement is at the core of our work..

Weeds & Pests

A constant reminder of ecosystem imbalances, weeds and pests require strategic thinking and sufficient resources to manage.

Education

Our future leaders will want and need an NRM context to grow healthy a region tomorrow.

With the 2019 Gulf Kids day event just around the corner, we thought we would share with you the highlights from last years 2 days of fun and learning! The biggest and best yet, hear from the women who attended this year’s Basalt Bash event and see why they keep traveling the long distances and coming back year after year.

An introduction to what the Healthy Farming Futures Project is all about. It is being run by Northern Gulf’s own Agricultural Officer and Agronomist, Sally Fields.

 @northerngulf – Northern Gulf and Werrington Station hosted Stuart Andrews from Tarwyn Park Training on Tuesday, 25 June.
A great group of graziers and community members came along to learn about natural sequence farming and regenerative agriculture. Among many topics, Stuart discussed erosion management, the usefulness of weeds, and keeping water in our land. Thanks to all those who attended a fun and educational day! #Gulffuture
