Preminghana IPA and Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre Rangers

Bordering Tasmania and the Southern Ocean, Preminghana was dedicated an Indigenous Protected Area in 1999. Covering 524 hectares of land in the north-west, it protects historic Aboriginal engraving sites and the endangered Preminghana daisy.

The Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre Rangers took over the management of Preminghana in 2014. Initial priorities were to understand community aspirations and to improve visitor and worker facilities.

The rangers are also controlling weeds such as gorse.
