Description of this AgencyDescription of this Agency
The Department of Conservation, Forests and Lands was established in 1983, as successor to the Department of State Forests (VA 534), the Department of Crown Lands and Survey (VA 538) and the Ministry for Conservation (VA 551). The Department's creation reflected the Government's intention to consolidate all public land management in one Department in order to better co-ordinate the use of all resources, to rationalise the many different authorities and land management systems, and to properly integrate public land use and management with conservation requirements ensuring the protection of native flora and fauna and their environments.

The Department operated a network of regional offices and serviced a range of advisory committees associated with the portfolio.

In April 1990 the Department of Conservation, Forests and Lands was succeeded by the Department of Conservation and Environment (VA 3004).
