CRATER is an acronym for the Centre for Regenerative Agriculture Training Education and Research.

Having been granted access to one of Central Queensland’s most unique grazing properties, CRATER offers a unique location to study Australia’s flora and fauna, agriculture and ecology.

We welcome scientists and researchers from all over the world, as well as farmers, students, and nature groups who align with the objectives of CRATER.

RESEARCHERS

Our unique landscape provides opportunities to study geophysical and environmental sciences,
and explore the possibilities of regenerative agriculture.

EDUCATORS & STUDENTS

Engage your students in a unique natural learning environment. Explore CRATER from our comfortable research base at the foot of Mt Goondicum.

FARMERS & GRAZIERS

Regenerative agriculture and biodiversity exist in harmony to increase natural capital – our engagement opportunities show how it all works.

NATURE LOVERS

Observe flora and fauna living peacefully among established forests and natural waterways. The crater is a safe haven for native wildlife and diverse plant communities.
