This report presents the first ever comprehensive national study of rural land ownership in Australia. Changing patterns of rural land ownership provide important evidence on the character of rural restructuring.
The report presents rural land ownership data across the six states of Australia. Data available at the time has limited the scope of this project to a period between 2004 and 2008.
This report provides important insights for investors and policy-makers keen to understand the dynamics of how changing patterns of land ownership intersect with rural economy and society. In particular, it has relevance for stakeholders in industry, public policy and research communities interested in the productive and environmental ramifications of changing patterns of land ownership.
