This petition of residents of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Assembly the current consideration being given by the Allan Labor Government to establish more national parks in Victoria, particularly in the central highlands and Gippsland regions. Communities are concerned that this will mean areas of state park, forest and bush are not accessible and will lock out users from a range of activities, including bushwalking, 4 x 4, motorbiking, horse riding, hunting, fishing, camping and other similar activities. This could significantly impact both these user groups and the communities where these parks may be established, limiting tourism and visitation.


The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Assembly call on the Allan Labor Government to not create any new national parks and keep our forest regions and bush open for public access and enjoyment.
