Have your say on the future of South Australia’s pastoral rangelands as part of a review of the Pastoral Act.

What is being decided?

South Australia has a long history of shared responsibility for the state’s pastoral rangelands between land managers and State Government, governed by the Pastoral Land Management and Conservation Act 1989.

A review of the Act is being conducted, with stakeholders invited to provide their views on the future management of the rangelands.

We want to operate under modern legislation that reflects the shared vision that South Australians have for the future of the pastoral industry and the public value of the rangelands.

At the heart of the review we want to ensure that South Australia can realise the greatest value from the rangelands, while continuing to maintain the environmental and productive condition of the land for future generations.

How can your input influence the decision?

Your input on the questions posed in the discussion paper will help inform our collective vision for the rangelands, and how they are conserved, managed and administered. This will help guide the changes considered to modernise the Act.

Get involved

Read the discussion paper Planning for the Future of South Australia’s Pastoral Rangelands and provide your feedback on the questions posed in the discussion paper via the online survey.

Your submission may be made publicly available unless you indicate you wish for it to remain confidential

What are the next steps?

Once the consultation is completed, all feedback will be considered to modernise the Act. A draft Bill will be circulated along with a summary of what we’ve heard throughout the consultation process. You will have the opportunity to review the draft Bill and provide further feedback on about how it might operate.

Once this final feedback is gathered, a final Bill will be prepared for introduction into Parliament.
