NPAQ believes accommodation should be located outside national parks to protect their natural value. We are concerned that this proposal will use taxpayers money to support commercial eco-tourism that could undermine our national park system.
NPAQ acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the Queensland National Park Estate and strongly supports co-stewardship with Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service.
Queensland is endowed with wonderful national parks, the prime purpose of which is to preserve the plants and animals that are contained within. NPAQ fully supports the notion that that national parks are important for humans but believes activities should be compatible with the purpose of nature conservation.
