Tambua Regeneration Project

Tambua Station is a farm located near Cobar, NSW that produces fine quality wool and cattle products. The Evans family own the land and recently celebrated 100 years and five generations on the land with a party at Tambua. Over the years the family have overcome a number of challenges that so often occur when farming including financial hardship, drought and bushfires.

In October 2015, the family received the Australian Century Farm and Station Bronze Plaque at an award ceremony at Parliament House. The award recognised the hard work and desire to continue what were 100 years ago, a dream, then a reality and now family tradition.

This project establishes permanent native forests on the property through assisted regeneration from seed in the ground on land that was previously cleared of vegetation and where regrowth has been suppressed for over 10 years. The project is to assist native forest regrowth by managing the timing and extent of grazing and the cessation of mechanical clearing to allow the germination and development of native forests.​​
