North Kimberley station manager Susan Bradley supports Outback WA reforms

North Kimberley cattle station manager Susan Bradley, who oversees Theda and Doongan stations, spoke to ABC Country Hour today about her support for the government's proposed new legislation that will shape the future of the Western Australian Outback.

Ms Bradley said that many pastoralists have been seeking Outback reform for a long time. She criticised those who are seeking to stand in the way of reforms, characterising them as "dinosaurs of industry".

"I don't think that the dinosaurs of the industry should be holding back these people who really want to care for the land," Ms Bradley said.

Ms Bradley is in favour of diversification into more sustainable enterprises in the Outback. The stations she manages are extremely remote, meaning that getting livestock to market is challenging. "We are interested in conservation, in the biodiversity, environment, flora and fauna, and we are carbon trading,” Ms Bradley said.

Our Outback is an amazing place, but what makes it special is at risk. 

Help make Outback carbon farming a reality

Carbon farming is breathing life back into the Wheatbelt. But just over the fence in WA’s Outback, where it's needed most, it's not allowed.

Kent Broad has been a farmer all his life and he's seen first-hand the benefits that carbon farming has brought to WA's Wheatbelt - but the Outback is missing out.
