Regional Forestry Hubs boundaries (2022) is a spatial dataset comprising the boundaries created by each of eleven Regional Forestry Hubs established under the National Forest Industries Plan [PDF 3.1 MB].
The Regional Forestry Hubs were created under the National Forest Industries Plan and associated budget measures to identify economic and social opportunities and benefits in regions with existing concentrations of wood supply resources, processing and/or manufacturing operations, established transport links, and strong potential for growth.
The Regional Forestry Hubs boundaries (2022) dataset was assembled by ABARES for the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry to support the Regional Forestry Hub committees. Each Regional Forestry Hub is led by a committee which worked with local stakeholders such as the forest industry, community groups, forest consultants and state and local governments, to define its specific region. A mix of different geographic elements were used to inform the development of the hub boundaries including Local Government Areas, Regional Forest Agreement regions, and major roads and rivers. ABARES is the central repository of each of the hub boundary datasets, all of which have been endorsed by their respective committees.
