Hands Off Lindeman Island

Call on the Queensland Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk, and Minister for Environment and Heritage Protection and Minister for National Parks and the Great Barrier Reef, Steven Miles, to reject the proposal by Whitehorse Developments to privatise nearly 37 hectares of Lindeman Island National Park in the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.

Lindeman Island has been declared a national park because of its exceptional scientific, ecological, heritage and recreational values. Any changes to the land tenure of Lindeman Island will lessen the protection of those exceptional values.

Public opinion, actively demonstrated over decades, indicates that citizens believe that areas declared as National Parks form a vital part of the state's heritage for all to enjoy.

We call upon Queensland Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk, and Minister for Minister for Environment and Heritage Protection and Minister for National Parks and the Great Barrier Reef, Steven Miles, to ensure that:

  • The whole of Lindeman Island National Park is be retained as national park
  • Lindeman Island National Park is properly managed so as to protect its exceptional values
  • No national parks are privatised.

    I have witnessed modifications just recently on another local island. Please do not disrupt this National Park., it is just not worth it.
