Consultation and notices
NPSR publishes notices under the legislation it administers (such as the Nature Conservation Act 1992, Marine Parks Act 2004 and the Recreation Areas Management Act 2006) to ensure that the public is informed about decisions the department makes about the management of its estate from time to time.
This may include tenure changes, the declaration of special management areas, seasonal closures to areas, and temporary management arrangements to protect the natural and cultural values of an area.
Notifications about the management of NPSR’s estate will be published here when they are announced.
Have your say
Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service is now reviewing the Hinchinbrook Island National Park Management Plan and the community is invited to provide feedback.
Hinchinbrook Island National Park, including Agnes, Eva and Haycock islands, is one of the world’s largest island national parks. Hinchinbrook Island, Hinchinbrook Channel and the coastal plain are a unique part of the Wet Tropics region—and the national park is one of the least disturbed coastal environments in this region, from the mountains down to the mangroves. The Park‘s outstanding natural and scenic values were recognised in its listing as part of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area in 1981.
Hinchinbrook Island National Park will continue to be conserved to protect its endemic and threatened plants and animals, ecosystems, exceptional scenic beauty, and visitors’ experience of remote and wild nature—many of these values having international significance.
