The proposal for the expansion of Wellington National Park has been released for public comment with submissions closing COB 13 March 2019.

The proposal would see an additional 7360 hectares of land added to the national park, along the current southern border of the park to the Preston River.

These additions will increase the overall area of the national park to almost 25,000 hectares.

The proposed reserve design seeks to balance environmental, economic and social factors and minimise the impacts on the timber industry.


The proposal for the expansion of Wellington National Park is open for public comment.
