Travelling Stock Reserves (TSRs) are parcels of Crown land reserved under legislation for use by travelling stock.
TSRs have been an integral part of rural life in Australia for nearly 200 years and the grazing industry is still dependent on these reserves, mostly as supplementary grazing areas in times of drought, bushfire and flood. TSRs are also used for public recreation, apiary sites and for conservation.
All TSRs are Crown land with the vast majority being managed under trust by the Local Land Services The Local Land Services are responsible for the administration of the Local Land Services Act 2013. For more information please refer to http://www.lls.nsw.gov.au
There are over 6,500 TSRs throughout NSW, covering an area of approximately 740,000 hectares.
All TSRs will be reviewed by LLS in the future as part of the Crown Lands Management Review.
