About


Who we are...

QMDC is a community-based, not-for-profit organisation that delivers natural resource management (NRM) and environmental services across the Queensland Murray-Darling Basin.

Our team is based in offices in Toowoomba, Goondiwindi and Roma and Aboriginal Rangers’ depots in St George and Inglewood. 

We  share a passion for sustainability of the region's natural resources and travel much distance to deliver on-ground works that make difference to landholders.

We take pride in having highly-skilled and experienced technical staff as specialists in agricultural systems, ecosystem ecology, weed and pest management, landscape condition assessment, land rehabilitation, mapping, riverine systems and repair, community engagement and environmental management systems.

Our corporate services and communications team looks after our technology, financial management, governance, occupational health and safety systems, communications and public relations.

We also work closely with Landcare officers who are funded to help our technical staff deliver programs to landholders. 

QMDC has a team of Aboriginal rangers as part of our Aboriginal Program to help protect the Basin’s cultural heritage by working closely with Traditional Owner Elders, Elders and Seniors of Nations in the region.
