Burnett Mary

The Burnett Mary region is approximately 53,000 square kilometres and encompasses the World Heritage-listed Great Sandy Strait. This includes Fraser Island and the southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. The region has a moderate, subtropical climate with mean annual rainfall of around 1000 millimetres.

The Regional Natural Resource Management body, the Burnett Mary Regional Group, works with industry and landholders to improve land management practices and improve water quality across the region. Land management practices are being improved through capacity-building activities and the use of incentives. This will reduce sediments, nutrients and pesticides entering waterways and ultimately the reef.
