Have your say on the Murray River National Park draft management plan.

What's being decided?

We want to hear your views on an updated management plan for the Murray River National Park. The management plan outlines the objectives and strategies that will set the direction for the long-term management of Murray River National Park.

Your feedback will help shape how the park is managed into the future.

Background

The Murray River National Park’s current management plan was adopted in 1994, with relatively minor amendments made in 2010. Since then, there have been significant changes in the extent of the park and how it is managed.

A new park management plan is proposed to refresh the management approach, and more clearly detail the planned management of the park.

When finalised, this plan will also guide management for the adjacent Rilli Island, Media Island and Kapunda Island conservation parks.

A park management plan is required for every park in South Australia proclaimed under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1972.
