How many animals am I allowed on my land?

The amount of animals vary on the size of your block of land and what animals you intend to keep. We get asked this question many times by our Townsville customers and to make it easy we have found the answers for you.

All information can be found on the Townsville City Council Website. (https://www.townsville.qld.gov.au/community-support/pets-and-animals/animal-registration-and-legislation#standards)

Note: you are always responsible for managing the impact of your animals on your neighbours. Deemed Approval means you are doing that.
