Protecting Wilderness and National Parks

Management issues

Off road vehicle activities, logging, sand quarrying and coal mining are making ever increasing incursions into the Gardens of Stone - Stage Two reserve proposal. All these activities cause serious environmental damage to fragile rock formations, streams, cliffs and groundwater dependent ecosystems such as upland swamps.

The reserve proposal is a comprehensive protection plan to curb cumulative impacts and to foster appropriate recreation within the proposal area. The following management issues are addressed:

The Bells Line Super-highway proposal

Logging operations

Adventure recreation

Hunting

Helicopter over flights

Sand Mining

Off road vehicles

Coal Mining
