Consultation and notices


The department publishes notices under the legislation it administers (such as the Nature Conservation Act 1992, Marine Parks Act 2004 and the Recreation Areas Management Act 2006) to ensure that the public is informed about decisions the department makes about the management of its estate from time to time.

This may include tenure changes, the declaration of special management areas, seasonal closures to areas, and temporary management arrangements to protect the natural and cultural values of an area.

Notifications about the management of the department's estate are published on our Public notices page when announced.


The Department of Environment and Science (DES) has prepared a draft management plan for Mount Coolum National Park. Once finalised, the management plan will replace the existing plan which has been in effect since 1998.

The Mount Coolum National Park draft management plan (PDF, 2.1M) is accompanied by the Mount Coolum National Park Visitor Strategy (PDF, 1.6M) and Resource Information document (PDF, 1.3M).

All submissions will be considered when preparing the final management plan. Information about how to prepare a submission is available at

The closing date for submissions is Wednesday 13 March 2019.

Thank you for your continued interest in the management of Queensland’s protected areas. See further information on park management planning.
