Site Investigation Area for Koala Plans of Management Map

This map identifies areas that are likely to have koala use trees, as well as environmental features such as soil type, topography and climate suitable for sustaining koalas. This map was developed from the Koala Habitat Information Base. The map does not show core koala habitat, and is only relevant as an investigation area, when councils resolve to prepare a Koala Plan of Management. Outside of this process, the map is not relevant and is not used.
The map only captures land in the LGAs listed in schedule 1 of the SEPP. The map also excludes the lands that the SEPP does not apply to, such as national parks and state forests. The Site Investigation Area Map is not publicly available. To access this map, please contact your local council or the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment.
