2022 NSW Floods - Flood support for Crown land users

Severe weather and flooding natural disaster areas have been declared in many parts of NSW.

The department is providing immediate support for impacted Crown land managers, occupants, and users of Crown land. Please visit 2022 NSW Floods - Flood support for Crown land users for further information.

We are responsible for the management of NSW’s Crown land, covering 42% of the state, including parks, reserves, roads and cemeteries.

Protecting and enhancing Crown land is essential for business, tourism, recreation, well-being and the biodiversity of the state. Crown land has significant spiritual, social, cultural and economic importance to the Aboriginal people of NSW.
