Great Eastern Ranges - Border Ranges Alliance


The Border Ranges Alliance is one of five regional partnerships formed as part of the Great Eastern Ranges Initiative. The Border Ranges region is rich with people and groups committed to keeping our environment as the spectacular and diverse place it is today and helping to improve it for future generations.

The Alliance brings together committed groups from north east NSW and south east Queensland to strengthen conservation connections across the state border. The Alliance groups are working to protect and improve the connectivity of natural areas in the Border Ranges to help our native plants and animals.

The Border Ranges region is one of the most biologically diverse landscapes in Australia, supporting a significant number of rare and threatened species, as well as native plants and animals only found in this region. Highly fragmented due to past clearing, the area is part of the network of World Heritage listed Gondwana Rainforests of Australia.

The Great Eastern Ranges Initiative is a concept that brings people and organisations together to focus efforts on establishing a conservation corridor along the great eastern ranges from the Alps in Victoria to the Atherton Tablelands and beyond. It is a project that will take many generations to realise.

The Great Eastern Ranges Initiative is built on a foundation of community partnerships. It aims to raise community awareness and support, and connect land owners with on-ground delivery programs using a variety of mechanisms for restoration and conservation on private land.
