STATE AND TERRITORY FORESTS

Queensland, the Northern Territory and New South Wales together accounted for three-quarters (74%) of the 147.4 million hectares (ha) of native forests in Australia in 2006.

While the Australian Capital Territory and Tasmania are small in area, around half of their area is designated as native forest (51% and 46% respectively).
