SUPPORTING BUSHFIRE RECOVERY
The 2019-2020 bushfire season has devastated farmers and communities across the country. As part of our ongoing commitment to rural and regional Australia, we’re here to support farmers in rebuilding their fire-damaged fences.
Supporting Our Neighbours Program From NSW Local Land Services
The NSW government has recently announced a new program offering financial assistance for bushfire-affected landholders whose property borders public lands.
Private landholders who share a boundary with public land and were impacted by the Northern and Southern fires of late 2019 and early 2020 are eligible to receive up to $5,000 per kilometre to contribute to the replacement of damaged boundary fences.
For more information, or to apply, visit the NSW Local Land Services website.
Our Connection To Rural Australia
Australian Concrete Posts are based in Northern NSW and are surrounded by some of the areas hit hardest by this summers fires. Our team live and work in rural Australia. And to us, it’s more than just a great place, it’s our home.
Our products are designed with Australian farmers in mind, and our resellers who have made it possible for us to become one of Australia’s fastest-growing rural fencing brands are all based in rural and regional areas. For more than 6 years, our goal has been to provide farmers with best quality, innovative, reliable, affordable and long lasting products, and to do so with genuine integrity. We work closely with farmers to continually develop our range of products, and we also support farmers in rebuilding and restoring their fences.
Available Government Assistance
The Australian Government has committed $100 million in emergency grants for Primary Producers.
Up to $75,000 is available to farmers, fishers and foresters located in declared bushfire disaster areas. This is to cover costs for immediate and emergency needs not covered by existing insurance policies.

Our Advice For Rebuilding
Plan Wisely For The Future
When rebuilding fences consider how they’d look, and don’t just rebuild where they were before the fires. Consider how your fences, tracks, roads and gateways affect your everyday productivity and build your new fences for how you’re going to use them, not how they were built before.
Use Fire-Resistant Materials
As unfortunate as it is, grass and bushfires are a reality all over Australia, so when rebuilding your fences, we recommend you opt for fire-resistant materials. Choose concrete straining and fence posts with steel stays over timber ones, to ensure they will stand up to the heat.
Build Quality, Long-Lasting Assemblies
Just because a job has to be done quickly doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be done right. Don’t let quality slip because your fence repairs are urgent. Use our high-quality, long-lasting brackets to build strong fences or you’ll be fencing all over again when the ‘quick-fix’ rusts or rots.
