This year the three day event will be held from 3 to 5 September 2012 during Landcare week at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre Darling Harbour. This conference is a great opportunity to bring together individual Landcarers, Landcare and community groups, regional bodies, natural resource management practitioners, international Landcare members and Australian Government representatives.

The conference theme for 2012 is ‘Landcare – the future in our hands’. With a growing interest in and concern for sustainable living and food security, the Landcare community is at the forefront of helping to ensure that Australia can move confidently towards a smart and resilient agricultural and environmental future.

The 2012 conference will provide delegates with an opportunity to learn about and share innovative practice approaches and solutions as well as opportunities to renew contacts, build new networks, share ideas and discuss challenges within the wider Landcare community.  The National Landcare Awards will be held during the conference and all finalists will present on their award recognised projects.
