Gathering together 10 years of extensive public data, the Natural Resources Inventory provides a comprehensive stocktake of Queensland’s natural resources.

This interactive tool captures the extent of the state’s land, water and vegetation, key mineral and energy resources in charts and figures.

Use the tool to explore topical themes in resource management, filter facts and figures by region or resource, and customise graphs or tables.
