Hands Off Our National Parks

Sign our petition to demand the Queensland Government say no to the privatisation and destruction of our National Parks.

Hinchinbrook Island, Whitsunday Island and Cooloola have been declared national parks because of their exceptional scientific, ecological, heritage and recreational values. Any changes to the land tenure of those national parks will lessen the protection of those exceptional values.
Public opinion, actively demonstrated over decades, indicates that citizens believe that areas declared as National Parks form a vital part of the state's heritage for all to enjoy.
We call upon Queensland Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk, and Minister for Environment and the Great Barrier Reef, Leeanne Enoch, to ensure that:
  • The whole of Hinchinbrook Island, Whitsunday Island and Cooloola National Parks are retained as national park with no private development within them; 
  • The three national parks are properly managed so as to protect their exceptional values; and
  • No private development is permitted within any of Queensland's national parks.
