The Cungulla wetlands are located in the coastal plains of the Burdekin Dry Tropics Region. The wetlands adjoin the regionally important Wongaloo/Cromarty. Work was undertaken on the Bulraga property that focused on wetland enhancement, weed removal and re-vegetation. Weeding was carried out by a mix of hand weeding and herbicide application. Several hundred native species were planted, and were mulched and watered before the wet season. In addition, on-ground works included the excavation and deepening of a dune swale wetland to create a more permanent water resource for native animals. Noogoora burr seed pods were collected with the innovative use of a paint roller and then destroyed.
