It’s considered one of the showcase pieces in the International Rangeland community and it’s coming to Adelaide, Australia.

As this will be the first time in nearly a decade that the community will be able to physically meet, organisers of the XII International Rangeland Congress are preparing for a memorable event. On behalf of the Australian Rangeland Society and the International Rangeland Congress Continuing Committee, the Australian Organising Committee invite all interested parties to the Adelaide Convention Centre on June 2-6, 2025.

Pieter Conradie, Dr Nicole Spiegel and Dr Andrew Ash are Co-Chairs of the XII IRC Organising Committee.

“In addition to the networking at the congress, we will provide the opportunity for delegates to experience Australia’s vast rangelands through a range of exciting pre-congress and mid-congress tours,” they said.

“A number of sub committees have already been formed and developed seven sub-themes to underpin the overall Congress Theme of ‘Working Together for Our Global Rangelands Future’.”

In an interesting sidenote, the congress logo, which represents the sun rising over a sand dune, was designed by Caitlin Conradie, a graphic design student, who is also the daughter of current Congress Co-Chair, Pieter Conradie.
