The Tablelands and surrounding environs have some of the best agricultural land in Queensland, coupled with the most intact savannah woodlands and oldest tropical rainforests on Earth.
The region’s productive and natural landscapes, including its rural communities, are highly significant. Our commitment to maintaining these qualities are reflected in the Strategic Framework Planning Scheme 2016, Tablelands Community Plan 2021, Corporate Plan 2017-2021 and Beating About The Bush: An Overview of TRC’s role in Natural Asset Management in the TRC Region.
