ABC News: New rangeland lease could see pastoralists shift focus

The rangelands conference held by the Department of Lands yesterday attracted around 230 people who were keen to hear more about Minister for Lands Terry Redman's vision for Outback reform.

The creation of a rangelands lease (which would be a new, non-compulsory form of lease) is a step in the right direction, but the detail is missing for the smaller family-run pastoral businesses, as pointed out by a pastoralist from Mt Magnet in this story from ABC News.

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