About MyEnvironment

MyEnvironment is a free application that lists environmental assets and heritage sites in your suburb or surrounds.

Anyone with an Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod touch can download MyEnvironment for free and use it to search for information about heritage sites, wetlands, national parks and protected plants and animals in any Australian location.

MyEnvironment relies on datasets held by the Department of the Environment. It displays descriptions, maps and photographs of:

  • heritage sites
    • world heritage, Commonwealth heritage and national heritage
    • historic shipwrecks (State, Territory and Commonwealth protected shipwrecks)
  • protected areas - national parks and reserves both on land and at sea
  • threatened ecological communities - native habitats that are listed as critically endangered, endangered or vulnerable under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act)
  • protected species - plants and animals that are listed as critically endangered, endangered, vulnerable or conservation dependent under the EPBC Act
  • invasive species - animal pests
  • weeds - invasive plants
  • wetlands - including Ramsar wetlands.

MyEnvironment only lists Australian plants and animals that are protected under the EPBC Act. So results for Tamworth, NSW will include the EPBC Act listed spot tailed quoll but not the more common eastern grey kangaroo.
