Working with government at local, state and federal levels, assists Landcare Australia in supporting the Landcare community’s activities and raising awareness of Landcare at a national level.

In Victoria, we work closely with the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning to ensure corporate funding for on-ground projects and were supported to bring the 2016 National Landcare Conference to Melbourne. In South Australia, we are supporting a major revegetation projects along Adelaide’s rail corridors in partnership with The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure.

At a national level, in the last year we worked with the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources to deliver the National Landcare Conference and Awards, the quarterly Landcare in Focus publication, and the Bob Hawke Landcare Award, through the National Landcare Programme.
