A Land Management and Conservation Award was presented in April 1990 to the Queensland grazier best demonstrating sustainable land use, assessed on criteria of: land use for sustainable production; management techniques; property planning; and habitat management. The United Graziers' Association of Queensland (UGA), a voluntary union of graziers, conducted the Award. This paper discusses the Award and how it was structured, outlining techniques employed by the six regional winners in achieving conservative management practices on their individual properties. Conclusions are drawn on common management techniques employed by the regional winners. The paper indicates how the information derived from the Award can be used to build on the community interest that it created.
