For more information on the AKF’s Koala Habitat Atlas (KHA) Project, please visit: /our-work/koala-habitat-atlas.  The Koala Habitat Atlas Project maps, identifies and ranks all Koala Habitat in Australia, and has been funded since 1992 from the generous donations of our supporters around the World.


Koala Habitat mapping is based on the following vegetation datasets:


New South Wales:

Various datasets obtained from the NSW Vegetation Information System’s (VIS) map catalogue managed by the NSW Department of Environment Climate Change and Water (DECCW).

For more information about the Vegetation Information System refer to the DECCW website

Primary custodianship (ownership) of these data sets resides with private individuals, councils, catchment management authorities, government agencies, and are held, displayed and distributed under appropriate licence agreements with the relative custodian.

Where the KHA is not available in certain areas of NSW coverage unranked Potential Koala Habitat is provided. This Habitat mapping is derived from the Present Major Vegetation Subgroups – NVIS Version 4.1 dataset. Copyright of this dataset is held by The Commonwealth of Australia represented by the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities and is based on data provided by DECCW.
