Support the creation of the Fitzroy River National Park

Posted on August 22, 2020

All the effort to establish a new Fitzroy River National Park is under threat - with irrigation interests pushing against the creation of the National Park.

The Fitzroy River National Park is an essential part of both protecting the river and supporting new jobs in tourism and land management

The proposed National Park will protect the beautiful gorges of the upper Fitzroy from big dams forever. It is being designed with Traditional Owners and will be jointly managed providing new jobs for rangers and in tourism.

Together we can show that the protection of the Fitzroy has much more support than plans to dam the river or pull off its life-giving waters for disastrous Murray-Darling style irrigation projects.

Add your name to let Government know they have the overwhelming support of the community to create the Fitzroy River National Park.
