Welcome to the heart of Queensland
Welcome to the Desert Uplands
Our Desert Uplands Bioregion is the elevated open woodlands in central Queensland, with ancient red sandy soils, native pastures and beef cattle grazing dominating.
Straddling the Great Dividing Range, these 75,000 square kilometres of uplands has created unique, internally-draining ephemeral lakes, with the western slopes draining into Lake Eyre whilst the east to the Great Barrier Reef via the Burdekin River catchment. With extreme remoteness and climate variability, our 300-plus livestock grazing enterprises are mostly family-owned and operated, collectively growing in excess of $400 million in product annually, mostly beef.
