Riverina Red Gum IFOA

On 1 July 2010, the National Park Estate (Riverina Red Gum Reservations) Act 2010 came into effect, establishing more than 100,000 hectares of river red gum parks in the Riverina and providing certainty for timber operations and timber-dependent communities across the region. The Act allows timber harvesting to continue in the Koondrook, Campbell's Island and Perricoota State Forests and in parts of the western land leases.

Integrated Forestry Operations Approval for the Riverina Red Gum Region

To give effect to the Government's decision, the Environment Protection Authority, Forestry Corporation of NSW and the Department of Primary Industries (Fisheries NSW) jointly developed an integrated forestry operations approval (IFOA) for the Riverina region.

The Integrated Forestry Operations Approval for Riverina Red Gum (PDF 2.2MB) commenced on 1 January 2011 and has effect up to and including 31 December 2030. Note that this is a compiled working document to include amendments and is not an official IFOA consolidation.
