The Australian Rangeland Society 22nd Biennial Conference

September 18 - September 22

18-22 September 2023  |  Broome Civic Centre, Western Australia

Australia’s rangelands cover 80% of the country and in 2016 were home to 394,000 people. More commonly known as the ‘outback’, rangelands support about 6,000 pastoral businesses and many of Australia’s Indigenous people. They are culturally important to all Australians and a key component of Australia’s identity.

The rangelands make a significant contribution to Australia’s economy*. Annual gross revenue from mining and oil and gas is $96 billion(value added), tourism is $2.7 billion, and pastoralism and agriculture combined are worth $5.5 billion. There is limited national data for other products such as bush foods and rangeland timbers although the value of kangaroo production approaches $200 million.
