Our region has diverse landscapes including rainforests and wetlands. Agricultural activities include dryland and irrigated cropping, fodder, vineyards, beef and dairy cattle, sheep, alpacas and goats, horse breeding, poultry and aquaculture.
The rates you pay to Local Land Services allow your local region to fund the services it provides to landholders and contribute to other important statewide functions.
Learn all about the Great White Shark from one of Australia's top authorities on the species at our Marine Discovery Series talks being held in Blacksmiths, Forster and the Central Coast in April.

A summary of our first year's local achievements is now available.
