Halifax Bay Wetlands National Park

Eligibility - Queensland citizens

Principal Petitioner:

Darren Firth
PO Box 1475

Total Signatures - 3324

Sponsoring Member: Andrew Cripps MP

Posting Date: 1/12/2011

Tabled Date: 1/12/2011

Responded By: Hon Vicky Darling MP on 20/12/2011

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of the citizens of Queensland citizens draws to the attention of the House the strong opposition by the people of Queensland to the decision by the Queensland Government to declare the Halifax Bay Wetlands National Park without any public consultation with the people of Queensland with such declaration restricting the recreational use of the area.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to reverse the declaration as National Park of the Halifax Bay Wetlands National Park and convert the area to a Recreational Reserve under the control of the Hinchinbrook Shire Council to allow all forms of recreation to be enjoyed in that area including but not limited to fishing, camping, hunting and horse riding.
