my friend who is taking me up there used to work for Qld DPI ( department of primary industries ) & currently works in NSW Local Land Services, another Govt rural based area . . . he has seen at first hand experience people like Shane doing the " right " thing by the environment or the land, but coming up against regulations & authoriteh . Thankfully, with good people like him on the ground, I think the systems are becoming more flexible & decentralised . . .
