- Daisy Hill Koala Bushland draft directions paper
The Department of National Parks, Sport and Racing has commenced a process to consider the future management and use of the Daisy Hill Koala Bushland, including the Daisy Hill Koala Centre.
The draft paper has been developed to encourage comment on the Koala Bushland’s future management, use and enjoyment. The draft has been developed following an extensive review of the site; assessment of the policy and planning framework and recreation and tourism opportunities; and consideration of a wide range of stakeholder and community perspectives.
Consultation included discussions with Queensland Government departments, local Council officers, recreation and conservation groups, local schools and community members.
A meeting with key stakeholders was held on 16 June 2016 and a public consultation event was held on 16 July 2016, which attracted close to 100 community members. Following this workshop, the draft Daisy Hill Directions Paper was compiled, incorporating stakeholder feedback.
You are now invited to have your say on the draft Daisy Hill Directions Paper. We are seeking your views on what actions and opportunities could be pursued to help shape the future of Daisy Hill, including:
- enhancing coordinated management
- improving the conservation values
- encouraging recreation in nature
- increasing the economic benefits from nature-based recreation and tourism
- adding value through Indigenous culture
- creating a Commonwealth Games legacy
- revitalising the Daisy Hill Koala Centre.
Please provide your feedback on the topics raised in this discussion paper by:
Submissions close on 31 January 2017.
