The Reef Protection Regulations in Queensland require graziers to document property areas of low land condition and make a plan for their future management (DES 2021). The Grazing Resilience and Sustainable Solutions (GRASS) program, funded by the Department of Environment and Science (DES), assists graziers in Great Barrier Reef catchments develop Action Plans for Land Management (APLM) for these areas and offers specialist support for issues such as erosion control. A grazier in the Fitzroy region identified significant erosion on a dam by-wash (Fig. 1a) and engaged the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) extension staff to assist with development of an APLM and a detailed plan for restoration of the eroded area. The aim of this project was to work with the landholder to reduce sediment loss from a gully created by the dam by-wash.
