Tourism-related issues are again discussed in this issue, specifically the opportunity presented by the COVID-19 shutdown to do things differently in future. There is also discussion of issues relevant to the forthcoming TWWHA fire management plan. Reviews of two new books also feature: Winter Light, by Grant Dixon, a photographic book celebrating this season in Tasmania’s highlands, and Kosciuszko: A Great National Park, a great read describing the history of ‘Kosi’. There’s also the usual summary of our activities over the past six months.

The Tasmanian National Parks Association offers an independent voice for Tasmania’s national parks and reserves, to ensure they are managed for the conservation of the values for which they were proclaimed.
