Rangelands

The Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia works with landholders in Western Australia’s (WA) rangeland regions to achieve long term sustainability through catchment and regional-scale monitoring, providing advice on how to address existing issues, and through the development and improvement of sustainable production systems. Our rangelands are complex and extensive ecosystems are managed by a diverse range of individuals, families and corporations. Approximately three quarters of Australia is classified as rangelands, with WA’s rangeland region extending across a variety of climatic and resource conditions.
