Bernard Keane makes the point more clearly than I did last night:

But the Greens are also working hard to develop a regional presence. The Greens’ second-biggest Senate swing, 5.5%, and biggest Reps swing, 5.15%, was in Queensland. Rachel Siewert and Christine Milne have been working hard on rural issues. On a number of issues like food security and coal mining in agricultural areas, the Greens have strong appeal to rural communities. Only on water is there still an ideological divide, although the complexities of water mean the Greens have common cause with some in the MDB.

He omits to mention the ETS (but, so did I last night, only thought of it this morning).
