Tabled Date: 14/02/2008

Responded By: Hon Warren Pitt MP on 13/03/2008

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland
The petition of citizens of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the banning of all camping by the Burnett Shire Council, thereby closing popular camping places such as Palm Beach, Coona, Norville Park, and Litterbella Creek. Your petitioners therefore request the House to take any available action to ensure that these camping grounds remain open to the public and maintain adequate camping facilities in the region.
