Purchasing Crown Land

Crown land in Tasmania is managed by various Government agencies. The information below relates solely to Crown land managed under the Crown Lands Act 1976 by Property Services (PS).

Crown land can be acquired by application.  Most parcels of Crown land sold as a result of a purchase application are not capable of being sold as stand-alone lots and are therefore usually adhered to the applicants adjoining title.  Examples include:

  • a length of Reserved Road that is no longer required by the Crown
  • a block of land that is too small or ill positioned  

Generally it is not possible to purchase coastal Crown land or land adjoining inland waters.

All Crown land is sold at market value as determined by the Director-General of Lands. 

Applicants will be responsible for associated costs.  These can vary considerably.  In some situations sale costs can be greater than the actual value of the land.  This is often the case with smaller parcels of land.  In addition to the purchase price, costs include:

  • application fee
  • valuation fee 
  • legal fees
  • survey fees
  • stamp duty
  • title registration fees

Applications to purchase Crown land can be made by lodging the relevant application form and paying the applicable fee.  Find out more about purchasing Crown land in the Purchasing Crown Land guide sheet.
