Investment in Dorrigo walks must be matched by Great Koala National Park establishment funding

The National Parks Association (NPA) welcomed yesterday’s announcement of major walking track upgrades through mid-north coast rainforests while questioning why the NSW Government has neglected to protect nearby public forests from logging.  

‘We’re always supportive of environmentally sensitive works for nature-based tourism, but surely the first priority must be to protect all of the forests of the proposed Great Koala National Park’ asserted NPA campaigner Paula Flack.

If you draw a circle around Sydney, half of it is native bushland. This is extraordinary, and a big surprise to many Sydneysiders. This proximity to such large areas of native bushland is true for many cities and large towns across NSW, making this state unique in Australia and internationally. There are many benefits and issues that come from having so many protracted areas in our backyards.
