We acknowledge the peoples of the Yuin and Wiradjuri Nations and the Ngarigo, Walgalu, Dharawal, Gundungurra, Djirringanj and Ngunnawal tribal people, who are the Traditional Owners of the Country that is the subject of this proposal. We pay respect to the Elders past and present of these Nations and extend that respect to other Aboriginal people who read about this vision for our children, our forests, our world.



We value the natural world, the beauty of it all, and our deep spiritual connection to the Mountains. We value the bush, rainforest, plants, animals, rocks, water, trees and Mountains. They are sacred to us, they are part of us. Plan of Management Yuin Bangguri (Mountain) Parks. 2014

The Great Southern Forest recommends that Federal and State Governments change management of the 432,575ha of public native forests in the Eden and Southern Regions of NSW from timber extraction to retaining them for carbon sequestration and climate stabilisation with jobs in forest restoration, culture and tourism.
