AW Landscape Board

Alinytjara Wilurara Landscape Board

The Alinytjara Wilurara region entered a new era on July 2020 with the appointment of Parry Agius as the Chair to lead the new Alinytjara Wilurara Landscape Board.

The Alinytjara Wilurara Landscape Board is one of nine new regional Landscape boards which will as of 01 July administer the new Landscape South Australia Act 2019.

Current members are all respected leaders from across the AW region recognised for their leadership skills and standing in the community.

The new board builds on the many successes achieved by the AW NRM Board, with an even greater emphasis on engaging Aboriginal people in effective soil and water management and weed and feral animal control.

The Alinytjara Wilurara (AW) Landscape Board has nine Aboriginal voting members all of whom have an interest and expertise in landscape management (caring for country) and indigenous issues.

The regional boundary has been slightly expanded to include previously excluded sections of Yumburra Conservation Park.

For more information about the new Landscape boards please see landscape.sa.gov.au.

Our Role

The AW Landscape board is the only all-Aboriginal board operating in this capacity in Australia. The board is unique in that it can advise on land care-related issues affecting the communities and culture of the region.

They also support effective ways of communicating and working in partnership with organisations, agencies, communities, traditional owners, elders and individuals for mutual benefit ‘ngapartji ngapartji’.

The board is responsible for the development and delivery of the Management Plan for the region. This plan, like the new AW Landscape Regional Plan (currently being drafted for release in July 2021) is developed in partnership with the community and stakeholders and aims to ensure that there is a balance between the needs of the community and the environment. Both plans set targets for the environment in the region, and is/will be delivered by the AW team through a diverse range of programs and projects across the region.

Our vision

Our vision for the region is for ‘a healthy and valued region, managed responsibly now, for the future benefit of people and country’.
