Consultation is now open for the draft management plan for the Cooloola Recreation Area.

The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) has co-designed the draft management plan in partnership with the Kabi Kabi People and Butchulla People.

The draft plan sets the strategic direction for the management of the area. It details Cooloola’s natural, cultural and social values, and outlines management directions to improve or maintain those values into the future.

Cooloola is valued for its exceptional scenic and natural beauty and important ecosystems; habitats for a variety of vulnerable animal species; world-renowned visitor experiences; a number of Queensland Heritage Register sites; and more.

The planning area for the draft management plan includes:

  • Cooloola Recreation Area
  • Cooloola (Noosa River) Resources Reserve
  • Great Sandy Resources Reserve
  • Double Island Point Conservation Park
  • Sheep Island Conservation Park
  • Goat Island (Noosa River) Conservation Park
  • Womalah Resources Reserve, and the
  • Cooloola Section of Great Sandy National Park.

Before completing the survey, please review the draft management plan for the Cooloola Recreation Area along with the resource information document, which tells the story of the park.

The online survey contains some mandatory questions, as well as options to allow either a quick response, or a more detailed submission, based on your areas of interest.
