Fieldwork & Collecting

Delegates wishing to independently collect material from reserved lands in the Australian Capital Territory and New South Wales will require scientific permits from the relevant agencies in each jurisdiction. Delegates are advised to submit applications for permits at least six to eight weeks in advance, to allow sufficient time for processing.
