The long campaign against commercial tourist developments in national parks and World Heritage Areas continues.
A flash point in this campaign is the ‘eco tourism’ development planned for Lake Malbena will introduce ‘helicopter tourism’ to the central plateau of Tasmania. Approvals have been ‘waved through’ by the federal government, and then been bogged down in legal processes.
To highlight opposition to ‘helicopter tourism’, The Wilderness Society and Walkers and Fishers Against Helicopter Access Tasmania have organised a rally in Launceston on Sunday April 5.
Bring your tents! We’re holding an urban campout and bring the wilderness to town.
Reject the taming of wilderness and national park privatisation!
Rewild Civic Square!
It’s a public space like national parks and the World Heritage Area
Stake your claim!
Speakers to be announced.

Yup, first they say it needs to be managed, then closely followed by it needs to pay for it’s self closely followed by partnership with industry with its myopic focus on the paying customer ….. later resulting in overrun devastated nature looking more and more like it’s unfortunate cousin the suburbia…. but with bling. Too right, who needs this crap ideology. We all need to root that thinking out of gov/business and community for good.
