The Northern Australia Beef Strategy Indigenous Pastoral Project is an Australian Government project, funded under the Northern Australia Sustainable Futures program. The Indigenous Pastoral Project is aimed at helping Indigenous pastoral businesses become commercially viable and sustainable. Central to the Indigenous Pastoral Project is a step-by-step manual which will assist both Indigenous pastoral enterprises and those Indigenous land owners wishing to become pastoral businesses.
The manual aims to build on the relationships already forged between northern Australian extension staff and the Indigenous pastoral industry, and to provide them with a tool to enable them access to all available resources. The manual incorporates the many resources, extension materials, and training programs already available, enabled by a commitment from all collaborators to provide materials and update them as required. Case studies of successful Indigenous pastoral businesses are also included, aiming to assist in engendering community support and engagement of Indigenous youth in the Indigenous pastoral industry; as well as demonstrate some of the many pathways to success.
A draft version of the manual was piloted in 2013 by extension officers on various properties at differing levels of development, and with differing governance structures, across north Queensland, Northern Territory and north Western Australia. Lessons learnt and feedback from the piloting process have been incorporated into the final version of the manual, which was launched in February 2014.
