• Travelling Stock Routes (TSRs)

    Travelling Stock Routes and Reserves (TSRs) form a network of about 700,000 ha of public land that criss-crosses NSW. TSRs were originally used by drovers and pastoralists moving sheep and cattle across the landscape on foot. Today, the TSR network is an important public asset which protects significant remnant habitat and threatened species, as well as cultural, recreational and economic values.

Travelling Stock Routes and Reserves (TSRs) are unique areas of public land in NSW, with important environmental and cultural values.

TSRs form a network of lands spanning over 700,000 ha, and were originally established for droving sheep and cattle across the countryside to market.

Unlike surrounding agricultural land, TSRs were generally not cleared. As a result, they provide important shelter and food for wildlife and protect threatened species and ecosystems.

TSRs are also important to many people for their cultural and historical values, economic uses and as places for recreation and enjoyment of nature.
