Got gamba grass? Get help through the Gamba Action Progam
A new 2020-2030 Weed Management Plan for gamba grass has been developed that establishes goals, objectives and management requirements for owners and occupiers. The overall aim is to reduce the risk and damage caused by gamba grass, and the destructive fires it fuels to the natural environment, life, property and infrastructure.

Community participation in the implementation of the Plan will be vital for controlling the spread of gamba grass and minimising its impacts on the environment, human safety and the environment. The Plan outlines requirements to be met by landowners, occupiers and all persons to comply with the Weeds Management Act 2001.
