Rehabilitation of Erosion Gullies – Adaptations and Learnings from the Mary River Catchment

Erosion is an ongoing process which all land managers need to recognise and minimise where possible. Over the last seven years, members of the soil conservation and natural resource management community in the Burnett and Mary River catchments have had the opportunity to study erosion processes and offer rehabilitation options on over 100 properties.

More recently, a three-year project in the Mary River catchment has resulted in new learnings on how to effectively rehabilitate gully erosion. This extended and focused period of work has formed the basis for the information provided in this guide. The authors have worked as a team on all of the projects showcased in this guide and through a process of continuous learning have adapted and refined erosion control practices to try and create the best possible, cost-effective rehabilitation and stabilisation outcomes for the region’s landholders and downstream water quality.

The work on erosion control will continue and the learning will continue. The team hope that the experiences and observations provided in this guide can give others a good head start on their soil erosion management journey.
