Welcome to the Hunter Region Landcare Network page. We aim to support and represent all Landcare groups in the Hunter region on public and private land.

The aims of the network are to facilitate field days and workshops, share knowledge and resources, promote funding opportunities, showcase local projects, and celebrate landcare community achievements.

Landcare in the Hunter Region includes Landcare, Bushcare, Coastcare, Wetlandcare, Friends of groups and Farmers, all working under the Landcare banner, on public and private lands, in just about every corner of our region and on just about every landform and land use.

The region is unique in the diversity of its vegetation and landscapes, which include the alpine rainforests of the World Heritage Barrington Tops, the dissected sandstone of the Great Dividing Range, the open grasslands and woodlands of the Upper Hunter, and the rich alluvial floodplains, estuarine wetlands, the coastal environment and mangrove forests of the Lower Hunter.
