Tasmanian Game Council

The Tasmanian Game Council is an independent advisory body providing advice to the Minister for Primary Industries and Water and the Government on game and browsing animal management and hunting in Tasmania. 

The Council was established in 2018 as one of the responses to the Legislative Council review into wild fallow deer in Tasmania.  Members were appointed for a three year period which was extended to 31 December 2021 so the Council could complete its work on the Wild Fallow Deer Management Plan.  

The Minister subsequently decided to seek public expressions of interest for Council members for the three-year period commencing about May 2022.

Expressions of interest for membership closed on 31 March 2022.
