Regional Landholder and Aboriginal Community Survey

Every three years, we coordinate separate surveys with landholders and Aboriginal community members within the Western Local Land Services region.

The surveys are designed to assist our local Board and staff with identifying opportunities and trends, with the information to help plan activities and priorities for the years ahead. They surveys have been run previously in 2014, 2017 and 2020. We are now calling for input into our 2024 surveys.

  • 15,000 hectares — average property size
