The Environmental Defender’s Office of Northern Queensland (EDO-NQ) is a
non-profit, non-government community legal centre specializing in
public interest environmental law. We provide advice to members of the public about environmental law issues.
Our web site has loads of information about our work and services, and
environmental law in Queensland. In particular it contains fact sheets
that summarise planning laws in Queensland, explain about the
regulation of World Heritages areas in North Queensland, and a raft of
other useful information.
The EDO-NQ is running some interesting test cases about environmental law, in particular about climate change, a huge issue for this special region. Find out about the interesting casework we are running in our regular bulletins and alerts .
