Abstract:     
This paper considers a contract lawyer's perspective of environmental regulation in Australia, with its emphasis on environmental agreements. Increasingly legislation is being passed in Australia that requires land owners to enter into agreements with relevant regulatory bodies concerning their behaviour that impacts on the environment. This paper considers whether they are agreements in the sense of contracts and points out some of the interesting features of these legislative agreements.
