Planning & development issues
Poor planning and inappropriate development in Tasmania’s national parks and reserves is not restricted to the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.
We have campaigned on a wide range of protected area management issues since our formation in 2001.
They include concerns regarding the management of many of our better-known parks, including Freycinet and Tasman National Parks (the latter including a range of concerns around the Three Capes Track) as well as on Hobart’s Mt Wellington.
Park management advocacy
“If we are going to preserve the greatness of our national parks they must be held inviolate. They represent the last stand of the primitive. If we are going to whittle away at them we should recognise from the very beginning that all such whittlings are cumulative, and that the end result will be mediocrity. Greatness will be gone.”
