Next Friday Environment Forum on August 26th– Teewah Beach Issues with Sandy Bolton, Member for Noosa and QPWS and QPS
Traffic and camping on Teewah Beach has been an ongoing advocacy for Sandy Bolton, Member for Noosa, and the community for the last 5 years. At the end of 2021, a targeted Noosa Electorate Survey on this issue, was released to previous camping and vehicle access permit holders, local businesses, tourism operators, local residents, First Nations and community organisations, universities and environment, wildlife and conservation groups. 75% of survey respondents were in favour of a reduction in the number of vehicle access permits issued during peak times for the Cooloola Recreation Area and Teewah Beach.
Addressing poor behaviour, control of visitor numbers, protection of key environmental habitats such as turtle hatching areas and reviewing community impacts have all had progress, however not enough.
On August 26th, Sandy Bolton, along with representatives from Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) and Queensland Police Service (QPS) will provide an update on this issue including future work in this space.
Everyone is welcome at the NPA Environment Centre, 5 Wallace Drive, Noosaville on August 26th to understand the issues and future proposals for management of traffic and camping on Teewah Beach. The forum starts at 10:30am and morning tea is available at 10-10.25am. Entry is $5 by “tap & go” at the door which includes morning tea/coffee. The organisers ask that masks are worn to protect the vulnerable in the audience.
Join the bird observers at 8.30am in the carpark for interpretive birding.
