Creating a healthy, prosperous, liveable, sustainable South East Queensland
South East Queensland is one of Australia's most desirable and fastest growing regions
Maintaining healthy landscapes and waterways is not just important for wildlife and ecosystems. A healthy environment also supports a vibrant economy, strong livelihoods, great lifestyles and the happiness and well-being of the community.
Our natural resources, like our land, soil, water, animals and plants are essential assets underpinning our economy, our way of life and our well-being.
Healthy Land and Water actively works to encourage people to examine and adapt their behaviours for the benefit of the natural world and for the people and places we love.
Healthy Land and Water is the natural resource management group for South East Queensland. It is one of 12 Natural Resource Management groups across Queensland. While it is one of the smallest in area, it is the largest in population, industry, and tourism. Covering 22,900 km², SEQ’s 12 local government areas provide various lifestyle options, diverse economies, and healthy natural environments.
Why maintaining healthy landscapes, waterways and communities is important for South East Queensland:
- Protecting and enhancing our wildlife and ecosystems
- Supporting the lifestyles, happiness, and well-being of our community
- Ensuring we remain a destination of choice for our visitors
- Underpinning jobs, livelihoods, and a vibrant economy
