Wetland wildfire

In September 2019, a wildfire burnt sections of the Gingham Watercourse in the Gwydir Wetlands leaving in its wake roughly 1,600 ha of black scorched earth (Fig 1). We were intrigued about how inundation may influence post-fire regeneration of these wetlands so we devised an experiment to learn more.

Gwydir booms again in 2021

Cycles of ‘boom’ and ‘bust’ periods dominate the Gwydir floodplain. Longer dry periods are often broken by flooding rains. The past several years have been one of those very dry spells for the Gwydir, a bust. However, the current ‘boom’ will help to rejuvenate the landscape and community after the long dry. Check out this flyer for an update of the Gwydir’s 2021 boom.
