Back burning at Royal Melbourne: Preserving native Flora and Fauna

Greenkeepers at Royal Melbourne Golf Club are using back-burning methods to promote the growth of local native flora and fauna.

Over the past few decades, the renowned sandbelt golf courses of Melbourne have undergone significant transformations. With the removal of most non-native plants, many golf clubs have become role models in effectively managing their courses by incorporating and conserving local flora.

The controlled burning of the heathland on the premises plays a crucial role in creating fresh opportunities for the growth of exceptionally rare and delicate fauna, making it a haven unlike any other in Australia.
