Stations urged to prepare for future disasters, with free help available for Etheridge, Croydon and Carpentaria

Is your property prepared for flooding, fire and other natural disasters?

Right now, communities in the Gulf are experiencing major turmoil and disruption from record-breaking floods, as rising waters have blocked roads, cut off supply chains, damaged infrastructure and forced people from their homes.

Are unpredictable weather events interrupting your business? Is your property still drenched or inaccessible? Has your fence been washed away with the flooding, or that old shed collapsed with the heavy downpours?

Your property is your livelihood, your business, your home – and security for your family. You need the reassurance that it, and everything on it, is protected.

While we cannot predict exactly when and where wild weather and disasters will happen in future, what we can be sure of is that they will happen again.

The good news is that there are some simple and effective ways to improve your property’s resilience to disaster, which you can start today.

Cattle station managers and landholders in the shires of Etheridge, Croydon and Carpentaria can access a free program to help them plan to be more resilient to natural disasters now and into the future.

Through this free program, which is supported by the Australian Government and offered by Gulf Savannah NRM, you can have your property mapped and get up-to-date maps including infrastructure, fire paths, fire scars, and flood risk.

These maps form part of a business disaster management plan, creating a one-stop property portfolio with all the information you’ll need to prepare for disaster or extreme weather event. This will also support you to take action during a disaster, or in the event you need to make an insurance claim.

Cattle station owners and landholders who are interested in taking up this offer can get in touch with Melissa Round (Resilient Futures Project Officer, Gulf Savannah NRM) by calling 0456 696 046 or emailing
