Have your say on the management of the Cooloola Recreation Area

The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) has co-designed a draft management plan for the Cooloola Recreation Area in partnership with the Kabi Kabi People and Butchulla People.

Community members are encouraged to review these documents and provide feedback by completing an online survey.

The draft plan sets the strategic direction for the management of the area to ensure an appropriate balance between recreation and conservation. It details Cooloola’s natural, cultural and social values, and outlines management directions to maintain or improve those values into the future.

The planning area for the draft management plan includes:

  • Cooloola Recreation Area
  • Cooloola (Noosa River) Resources Reserve
  • Great Sandy Resources Reserve
  • Double Island Point Conservation Park
  • Sheep Island Conservation Park
  • Goat Island (Noosa River) Conservation Park
  • Womalah Resources Reserve, and the
  • Cooloola Section of Great Sandy National Park.

Accompanying the release of the draft management plan is a resource information document.

Community members are encouraged to review these documents and provide feedback by completing an online survey.
