Review of the regulations for the management of Queensland’s protected areas, recreation areas and State forests
Every 10 years the regulations used to manage different types of natural areas such as protected areas (for example national parks), recreation areas and State forests are reviewed.
The purpose is to ensure the regulations remain up-to-date with contemporary needs for managing these areas on behalf of the community.
As part of this review, the department sought community feedback on proposed changes under the following topics:
- Camping and campfires in QPWS areas
- Using vehicles and aircraft in QPWS areas
- Prohibited activities in QPWS areas
- Permits for activities in QPWS areas.
This background information is also available as a document.
