The definition of 'vulnerable' under the EPBC Act is in Sub-section 179 (5)
        A native species is eligible to be included in the vulnerable category 
at a particular time if, at that time:
        (a)     it is not critically endangered or endangered; and
        (b)     it is facing a high risk of extinction in the wild in the 
medium term future, as determined in accordance with the prescribed criteria.

The prescribed criteria are in Regulation 7.01.  Links to the Act and the 
Regulations may be found here
