Properties For Sale

The Tasmanian Land Conservancy has a range of protected properties for sale. By choosing to purchase one of our properties, you will make a positive contribution towards conserving Tasmania’s unique biodiversity.

“Of the hundreds of properties the estate agents bombarded us with it was hard to judge their natural values. The TLC’s advice was invaluable. It was very important to us that the protected land was of a size to prosper and provide viable habitat for plants and animals. We live on the land and we see ourselves as caretakers,” – Janice & Rolf, Revolving Fund property purchasers.

How the Revolving Fund works

Through the Revolving Fund, TLC purchases land with important natural values, places a Conservation Covenant (a legally binding agreement under the Tasmanian Nature Conservation Act (2002)) on the title, and returns the property to the market for sale. Property-specific Conservation Covenants are registered on the land title in perpetuity, giving an assurance that important natural values are protected and managed for generations to come. Once Revolving Fund properties are sold, the new owners become the custodians of their own conservation reserves.

The success of the Revolving Fund can be attributed to high conservation value properties being purchased by committed, conservation-minded landholders. The Revolving Fund has protected around 7,000 hectares (ha) of priority habitats across Tasmania for 55 threatened flora and fauna species, including nationally endangered species.
