The north east of Tasmania is home to some of the most beautiful places in the world, including the famous Bay of Fires. Yet for many years the north east has been overlooked as a region in need of protection, even though it is an area of exceptional biodiversity. North East Tasmania Land Trust (NETLT) has been set up to help remedy this situation. It is a not-for-profit community-based charity. Read More About Us.

Land Gift: In an informal ceremony at the Falmouth Community Centre on January 7, 2013 the Schier family of Falmouth made a generous offer of land to the Tasmanian Land Conservancy (TLC) and the North East Tasmania Land Trust (NETLT). The Schier family signed over to TLC and NETLT the gift of a 50 acre block of land, which is completely forested and is located on the north side of the North Sister and looks out onto the north east of Tasmania. The gifting of this land to TLC and the NETLT had special significance for members of the Schier and Lohrey families who swapped stories of their heritage at a ceremony.

The North East is under threat:
Tasmania is a place of beauty and wild places with many reserves on public land. Yet the North East of the state has tended to be overlooked even though it is a place of exceptional biodiversity. Many important areas in the North East are now under threat from unsustainable development, land degeneration, mono-culture and clearing. Tasmania has the second highest per-capita rate of land clearing in the nation. Read More About Us.

How do we work?
The North East Tasmania Land Trust works in partnership with the Tasmanian Land Conservancy to protect valuable natural places. As a non-government organisation, the North East Tasmania Land Trust relies on the tax deductible contributions we receive from individuals and philanthropic groups.
