Right now the NSW Government has plans for a massive expansion of commercial activities in Kosciuszko National Park (KNP).
The Government wants to add another 4,000 beds to the resorts, build bigger carparks, allow helicopters to fly their clients into the park and, in a shocking rejection of sustainability principles, heat the waters of Yarrangobilly with gas in a parody of a Japanese onsen resort.
The NSW Government claims that KNP is in great condition and has plenty of capacity for further development. The reality is that these reckless plans overturn more than forty years of careful conservation management of KNP. The reason for the plans is clear- to enable an unsustainable expansion of commercial development across the park.
