Short bio: 

Cathy Zwick brings a diverse range of relevant skills and interests to her role as South West NRM’s Community Landcare Director. Cathy moved to south west Queensland six years ago, having come from a strong land management background. She currently lives with her partner on ‘Allambie Station’ on the Paroo River, where she works with his family running merino sheep for wool and farming cross-bred fat lambs as well as goats and cattle.
Prior to that she spent two years working with Bush Heritage Australia, which is a privately owned and run conservation-based agency that manages ‘Carnarvon Station’. Before settling in Queensland Cathy worked for the government for twenty years as a ranger on national parks in Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia.
Cathy brings a broad understanding of many issues people on the land face, and with that comes ideas for possible solutions.
“During the majority of my working career I have lived and worked in the remote, arid Rangeland and Mulga country of outback Australia and have had the pleasure of working alongside many different land holders, ranging from family owned and operated farming businesses, Indigenous communities and community interest groups through to large corporate enterprises,” Cathy said.
Cathy’s interests include terrestrial and marine photography, which has inspired her to travel around much of Australia and overseas. She is also captivated by what she sees in her own ‘back yard’.
“I have been able to indulge in this hobby particularly within the Murweh Shire, focussing on the diverse flora and fauna of this region along with some of the day-to-day operations within the grazing and farming industries within this diverse region,” Cathy said.
Cathy’s goal is to represent the needs of the community by raising the profile and involvement of Landcare for the purpose of assisting people tackle some of the challenges we all face.
