Biodiversity Land Pty Ltd, a Hardie Pacific subsidiary, has been at the forefront of Biodiversity Conservation in New South Wales since 2005. Our portfolio of sites are strategically located adjacent to either State or National Parks within the Hunter, Western, Central and Gunnedah regions and have been used as biodiversity offset sites for major projects in NSW. Over the years we have purchased, assessed some 18,000 ha. We currently have two sites available for sale.

Our properties have been assessed with regard to their conservation values. The results of which establish that they do provide habitat for various endangered ecological communities and threatened species. The properties have gained, in principle, support from the Government Authorities as suitable offset lands or Stewardship sites to provide biodiversity credits for most development types in NSW, whether mining, land development, infrastructure or residential.

During 2022 our ecologists have prepared draft Biodiversity Stewardship Site Assessment Reports for our remaining sites at Mount Mallumla and Goonama. Applications have been made to apply for a Biodiversity Stewardship Agreement, and ecology work is underway to finalise the  Biodiversity Stewardship Site Assessment Reports and Management Action Plans for approval with the NSW Government Credit Supply Taskforce. (CST).

On 5 November 2022, the Newcastle Herald published an article regarding our Biodiversity projects. Link Here.
