Management practice data is reported at the region level, but because the Mackay-Whitsunday report card includes the Don basin (meaning it is not the same as the Mackay-Whitsunday Natural Resource Management region), this can mean that management practice data may be different to the GBR report card. The GBR report card does not include the Don basin when reporting the Mackay-Whitsunday-Isaac region. This is particularly relevant to grazing and horticulture management practice reporting. Because there is minimal horticulture in the Proserpine, O’Connell, Pioneer, and Plane basins, horticulture is not reported in the Mackay Whitsunday region for the GBR report card. However, horticulture is a key land use in the Don basin, which means it is included in the Mackay-Whitsunday report card.
