Sounds like a bit of a nightmare with government officials!

isn't a great world we live in where access to private land is a breeze and access to public land is the difficult task.... I wonder if our president has any sway with getting through to people at DEWNR and fixing the "no" culture when it comes to public land? I don't know the whole story but this seems to be happening time and time again.

Rob tried, with the executive director of national parks. But the bottom line seems to be that central parks management didn't get around to giving the traditional owners' co-management group the requisite 60 days' notice despite OSA having been dealing with DEWNR since late last year on this event.

Their timelines, your timelines, our timelines... you want that now? Oh really?

And it's a shame that they could've collected a whole stack of park fees too.

On the plus side, the control sites for Belair have been approved!

Yay :) Let me know if you need help either putting controls out or collecting them.

(...and maybe TT should just keep the park fees which they have already collected as part of their event entry fees?)

One wonders what the traditional owners would do with 60 days notice.

If it was WA, they'd build a tent embassy.

Surplus park fees?... beer at the finish line.
