National Parks Hitch?

The Mercury newspaper has raised questions over the creation of a national park which includes the Bay of Fires. An article suggests that the state government budget cuts to the parks portfolio has raised real questions on whether there will be sufficient funding to go ahead. The state government says that community consultations are still going on.

The suggestion of a larger national park to cover north-eastern Tasmania came after the Bay of Fires region was named the world's best travel destination for 2009 by Lonely Planet travel guides.
