New vision for Queensland with Release of Ecotourism Plan

On 27 August, the Department of National Parks, Recreation, Sport and Racing (NPRSR) released the new Queensland Ecotourism Plan 2013–2020. The plan was developed following a six-week public consultation period during which 78 written submissions were received from organisations and individuals.

Key issues raised through the public consultation centred around six themes:

  1. conservation and protection—the majority of submissions (72%) identified resource protection and conservation as critical to maintaining Queensland’s high-quality natural values, which underpin the ecotourism industry
  2. wildlife
  3. links to other initiatives
  4. adventure and indigenous ecotourism and opportunities
  5. eco-certification
  6. partnerships
