Welcome to the Barkly
Barkly Landcare was formed in 1995 and is a community of pastoralists who are dedicated to improving land and environmental management practices in the Barkly region of the Northern Territory.
The Barkly Tableland is a vast and remote landscape within Australia. It is characterised by the Mitchell Grass Downs, naturally treeless plains with intact native grasses that support a productive beef industry.
The Barkly Tableland is home to several sites of national and international conservation significance. These sites include some of the largest freshwater lakes and wetlands in Australia that provide habitat to migratory birds and cracking clay specialists.
There are significant influences which threaten the natural ammenities of the Barkly Tableland. These threats can have significant impacts on the region’s biodiversity. Some of the threats to the Barkly include weeds, feral animals and grazing impacts around watering points.
