David, the context in Australia's rangelands is a bit different to that in the eastern and central zones of NSW where you do most of your
birding.  The freehold mentality that afflicts the owners of small
properties and hobby farms. As long as you don't disturb the stock, go poking around any improvements or stray too far from the road, you aren't going to be causing anyone any heartburn. You can't compare an unfenced million hectare property in the rangelands with a fenced ten hectare property round Capertee. If you see something interesting when you are driving up Cape York Peninsula, across the Top End, through the Kimberley or Pilbara etc, you don't go worrying where the limit of the road reserve is if there is no fence to demarcate things.

Regards, Laurie.

Hmmmm, OK, but in the vast majority of cases someone still owns, or
leases, the land and the laws of trespass still hold.  I'm sure this was written very much tongue on cheek.
