Iconic landscape and unique environment.
As a student or researcher, there's so much to discover in the Queensland outback at Fletcherview.
Fletcherview consists of two main country types: black and red basalt soils, and alluvial river flats along the river. The basalt country features a native grasses like black spear, kangaroo, desert blue, golden beared, flinders and numerous others, and introduced species, including stylos buffell and Urachloa. The alluvial country is mostly inhabited by introduced grasses such as buffell, Urachloa, stylos and some luecena.
There's 2.5 kilometres of frontage to the Burdekin River, one of the largest river systems in Queensland within Fletcherview's boundaries. There's also three major creek systems, Lolworth Creek, Pandanus Creek and Hann Creek, on the property for visitors to analyse and explore.
Industry-standard livestock facilities allow safe handling of cattle whilst allowing for processing, scanning and collection of samples.
Our cattle station has a number of small paddocks in close proximity to the yards for intensive studies and in-depth teaching.
