THE UANDA BURN: In 2020 Scott and Jody Murray, at Uanda near Prairie, made a stand against the invasion of rubber vine that was turbocharged by the catastrophic North Queensland floods of 2019. With the assistance of DCQ, and funding from the Australian and Queensland governments through the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements, the invasive weed was treated with a mister in winter and in August the dead rubber vine was burned to kill off seeds and get rid of the strangling vine.
But the Murrays know it will be a long process to stop the spread.
