The Department of Natural Resources and Mines (DNRM) administers about 68 per cent of Queensland under the Land Act 1994. Commonly referred to as State land, this excludes freehold land, Commonwealth land and land administered under the Nature Conservation Act 1992.
Leases and licences are granted over State land for specific purposes, including grazing, agriculture, industry and tourism. They are subject to a range of conditions to ensure they are managed appropriately. Additional requirements for rural leasehold land are detailed in the State Rural Leasehold Land Strategy.
Permits to Occupy
Permits to occupy can be issued over unallocated State land, a road or reserve for a specific purpose, e.g. as a pump site or for short-term grazing, but they are not issued over freehold or leasehold land.
Over 22 000 parcels of State land throughout Queensland have been set aside for public or community purposes under the Land Act 1994
Land designated as 'road' is an area set aside for the present or future use of the travelling public. Not all such designated land is currently used by vehicles or pedestrians, and some may never be used for this purpose.

The Department has released the Ross and Fig Tree Creeks Draft Management Plan for public submissions.
