Githabul Rangers

Kyogle, in the Northern Rivers region, is the home of the most extensive areas of subtropical rainforest in the world. Due to their international importance, the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia have been inscribed on the World Heritage List.

The Githabul Rangers are addressing the management of weeds such as lantana and introduced vine species in areas of high cultural significance to the Githabul people. The rangers are also undertaking interpretation and education activities to increase visitor knowledge on the Indigenous values of the area.
