Types of Crown land

We are responsible for the sustainable and commercial management of Crown land in NSW.

We provide land access for community, commercial and recreational purposes and ensure our land is sustained for future use.

There are different types of Crown land with many different uses ranging from cemeteries and crematoria through to Crown reserves used for showgrounds, tennis clubs and more.

We also work closely with the community and local government in the Western Division, which covers almost half of NSW.
