Rangelands include all those environments where natural ecological processes predominate and where values and benefits are based primarily on natural resources. They are areas which have not been intensively developed for primary production. The rangelands of the semi-arid and arid zones cover approximately 75 per cent of the Australian continent and equate broadly with the ‘Outback’. However, rangelands also occur in higher rainfall areas where limitations other than rainfall restrict use to management of the natural landscape.

The Australian Rangeland Society aims to promote the science and art of rangeland management and to foster dialogue between all those with related interests, both nationally and internationally. A full statement of the Society’s objectives may found in the Articles and Memorandum of Association.
