Thanks Angela and Colin for your suggestions.
Sorry it has taken so long to reply, so much has been going on in my head about this land.
Three months ago I met with two Government officials from the DNRE to evaluate my land and see what help they could offer.
They were rapt and very excited to see a nest of quails and a diverse collection of wildflowers. They informed me that this land was originally Northern Plains Grassland.
Currently there is no funding for fencing or seeds or anything, though they did give me a book and some other info. They also sent me satellite images and vegetation classes.
The lady said it would be great to create a miniature rainforest of grasses and orchids, as 200 years ago this was the predominant vegetation class, though I did ask her, " what was the vegetation class before Aborigines burnt it over 1,000's of years,' there was no answer.
They even suggested, grazing the land as the grassland doesn't like mulch or burn it, as this would regenerate the grassland and awaken dormant seeds. They said without proper management the grassland will disappear. They also told me to spray or hand remove the Bathurst Burr, and didn't agree that this is a pioneer species and when fertility increases they will disappear.
This really though a spanner in the works and Peter's way of thinking. The lady then showed me some of the revegetation work she had conducted on other farms and I was very impressed with some of these trees and shrubs.
Since this experience I have really been in a bind about what to do with with my time, money and energy. I really want to grow rainforest and a massive part of me wants to buy land in the Great Divide and establish rainforest, especially in the Black Saturday Fire Zone area.
I have even advertised to sell my land to funnel my resources into the Great Divide, though I still feel a connection with my land and feel that there are so many lessons that this land can teach me.
This is what I am dealing with.
How did these grassland species evolve, when they need fire to manage them, surely man hasn't always managed them.
Northern Plains Graassland is extremely rare with 98% of it gone and my small piece of land is a refuge for many species of flora and fauna.
To preserve this grassland, you can't plant trees as then they will provide a lookout for birds of prey, to easily spot the quails.
This is why a part of me wants to sell this land, as all I want to create is multilayered rainforest that once originally covered all of Australia.
Though if I sell this land there is a good chance the buyer will heavily graze it and it will be a desert again.
Anyway this is what is going on in my head.
Any advice or words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.
