Brookton Saltland, WA​

Balardong Noongar Country

Located in the WA Wheatbelt, this planting site is part of a larger property owned by a local farming family. Due to the clearing of native vegetation and grazing of stock over many generations, much of the land in this region is affected by salinity and erosion. The landholders are particularly concerned with the rising water table and salinisation of adjacent cropping land. 

We are working with Dr Peter Ritson from FarmWoods to restore this area using a specifically designed mix of salt-tolerant native species that replicate the pre-colonisation vegetation. 

Since 2019, approximately 35,000 native seedlings have been planted across the site including Atriplex (‘Salt bush’), Melaleuca, Eucalyptus and Casuarina species. Further infill planting is scheduled for winter 2022 to bulk up patchy areas of the site.
