Can't see it happening.
They might try, but as usual it'll be just another government f*ckup.
It's been tried before on a smaller scale & failed.
Apart from the problems associated with soil not fertile enough, there's also floods, cyclones, droughts & fires to contend with.
Then there's the environmental problems that would be associated with something as large scaled as this.
Anywhere humans encroach the environment loses.
Quite a bit of Australia's good fertile food growing land has already been developed for human habitation & that's a problem that will only get worse.
