About the Project
Mount Alfred Station is a 37,580-hectare property located near Wyandra on the west side of the Paroo River, approximately 750 kilometres west of Brisbane. The property has an Emissions Reduction Fund project registered under the ‘human-induced regeneration of a permanent even-aged native forest’ method. The project is working to assist the regeneration of native forests which have been suppressed by agricultural land uses, such as grazing. Forests are important to the healthy operation of the environment. They provide homes for wildlife, improve water quality, prevent soil erosion, reduce salinity and provide greenhouse benefits.
The Mount Alfred Project includes 18km of riparian zones along the Paroo River. The Paroo River is the last remaining free-flowing river in the northern part of the Murray-Darling basin and the riparian zones within the project are of high bio-diversity and conservation value.
