NPA submission guide for the Snowy 2.0 Main Works EIS

Great Koala National Park Update – March 2019

What’s going on?

There’s a lot of activity happening on the Coffs Coast around the Great Koala National Park! Right now, ads are running in cinemas in both Sawtell and Nambucca highlighting the benefits that the GKNP would bring to the local area in regards sustainable, nature-based tourism and benefits to small business. Local groups, including Nambucca Valley Conservation Association, the Bellingen Environment Centre and NPA’s revitalised Coffs Coast Branch are working hard to develop tourism and outdoor recreation offerings to make sure that a future GKNP will be not only a key conservation tool for koalas, but a world-class tourism destination that will provide a wealth of activities for locals and visitors alike.
