Does Parks Australia Have a New Agenda?

I was browsing the internet this morning and did a search for Parks Australia … and this is what I found on their home page.

Smack in the middle of the page was a delightful colour image from the Kosciuszko National Park in New South Wales. Which made me think … since when has this much-loved national park been a Commonwealth Reserve?

Perhaps the webmaster for Parks Australia doesn’t realise that the overwhelming bulk of Australia’s national parks aren’t Commonwealth Reserves and don’t fall under the auspices of Parks Australia? Or perhaps the inclusion of this image reflects a new acquisitive agenda for this Canberra-based bureaucracy?

Given this organisation’s disastrous management of our best-known national park – the Red Centre’s Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park in the Northern Territory – the last thing any thinking Australian would want is to see more of this country’s natural wonders being imprisoned by this hapless bureaucracy.

    Hi Ross, I run a website which seeks to educate the local community and anyone else really who want to find out the agenda of Tourism Australia, TTF and the State government in commercialising our National Parks. I live almost inside the Mimosa Rocks National Park where a commercial development (luxury accommodation) is planned on the cessation of the lease to the Myer/Grounds family (Jan 2011)

    The blog, accessed on the Home page navigation bar, collects all the current information about parks that Google captures. There is a strong group down here who are very active in protecting parks in this area.

    Join our mailing list if you would like or pop over to the website to see what’s happening.
