NSW Government: Purchasing land with priority koala habitat


The NSW Government has allocated $20 million to purchase properties in New South Wales with priority koala habitat for management and conservation within the national parks system.

Koala populations across New South Wales are under increasing pressure and are declining despite a wide range of conservation initiatives, including protections through legislation, recovery programs and various community efforts.

This land purchase initiative will assist in the long-term conservation of the koala.

Expressions of Interest

The NSW Government is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from landowners to sell land to the Office of Environment and Heritage which has priority koala habitat.

Land is being sought with high value koala habitat in the Far North EastPort MacquariePort Stephens and the Southern Highlands areas.

The EOI process will run for an initial period of 6 weeks from Monday October 22 2018 to 6 December 2018.

For more information and details regarding registering your interest in selling your land please refer to the NSW Government Office of Environment and Heritage website.
