No camping on stock reserves


Restrictions on camping are in place to protect TSRs and the important role they play in moving livestock, the grazing industry, biodiversity conservation and Aboriginal culture.

Local Land Services acting TSR business partner Aaron Smith said there are plenty of other places people are free to camp, including National Parks and State Forests.

“In addition to their agricultural benefits, TSRs are instrumental in connecting isolated patches of remnant vegetation and also provide habitat for many native species,” he said.

“Camping on TSRs can lead to damaging vegetation, harming habitat and rubbish dumping, which is why we’re reminding people that TSRs are off limits for camping.

“All TSRs are clearly signposted, but if you’re not sure whether you’re on a TSR, you can contact your nearest Local Land Services office to find out.

“We’re asking that you plan ahead before your camping trip and think again before setting up camp on a TSR.”

While camping is restricted on TSRs, people are encouraged to use TSRs for recreational activities such as walking, fishing and bird watching.

However, TSRs in the western division are not open for public access and can only be used for travelling stock.

To report any illegal activity on TSRs call Local Land Services on 1300 795 299, or the police assistance line on 131 444.
