In answer to your question corvus, this should make you think. Aside from this model for fleecing us we also paid for resurfacing the Temma Road in order to allow for mine traffic, hard to prove that assertion though, but look at the timing of the roadworks and the operation of that particular mine...on the plus side, that resurfacing has helped people using the Tarkine Drive to have safer travel.

It's contents seem well considered, well researched and well written. And i'm sure those involved are vastly qualified in their roles. I noticed a couple of baulking points but they are probably not even at issue depending on the chosen level of 'thinking positive'.

There are all sorts of minimal impact opportunities throughout the region that would cost far less, even if $ were the bottom line.


Your comments at the start about a commissioned report are very valid. I've seen many reports that do nothing more than support the entity that commissioned the report. No independence at all. The reason is that if the consultant tells the truth, there will be less such jobs in the future.

Under the imprimatur of the Bob Brown Foundation one could expect to be disposed to believing it. I don't believe anything until I read it, which I did, quite slowly, until the start of the detailed track notes. Just because advice comes from a respected source is no reason to suspend critical scepticism. Edward de Bono called this black hat thinking, looking at where things go wrong, what is incorrect, and like issues. In finance, this is a sort of stress analysis. What if interest rates do this, the US$ does that, and the price of bauxite goes south? Easy - elect the DLP on 2 June.

The scope and breadth of the report shows quite clearly that Martin has experience in this area, and surely the Bob Brown Foundation knows about Tassie wild places.

So I read the start of the report carefully, and, as far as I can see, it looks good. However, you have raised a second very valid point: is there a better way that achieves a similar result with less cost and/or less environmental impact? Don't ask me, I don't know the region.

Searching for an alternative solution and resolving your baulking points is or should be part of the public assessment process. I'm not keen on the word "destruction" in the context of assessment. Certainly, it's quite possible that parts will be changed, perhaps abandoned. My preferred word is "constructive", which may apply to destructive. The semantics don't matter at all. What is important is that interested parties take a good look at the proposal and see if it works. At least there's a higher profile for the Tarkine and people are thinking.

I'm curious how it's now hard bitten members of the bushwalking community using terminology such as that 'it's a small price to pay'.
Lot's of people seem to have made the seamless transformation to this being a given. 'The Tony Abbotts of this world'? then, yeah, away we go.

Idealism is all very well, but we all of us live in the real world, and that means pragmatism is the only way to get any sort of result.

I'd rather no development. Even the road was arguably a step too far. But if its a choice between the TTT and Shree's mine, I know which way I lean.

It's not a choice between them?, other than a hope for the future, if asking for public funding any bigger goal should really be spelt out?

Lop, I'd contend that you really don't need to have visited the area nor opened that document to have a valid opinion on the scope of this project, by these people.

Even a car based tour would highlight reasonable questions of what on earth WHA means to some. I dread the imposition of a global view, here incredulously assisted by those who should know better. That aside, my concern is mostly for the degenerate abandonment of care for the WHA we have. It will have been enough here for the proposal to exist even if it was a red herring or considered move in a bigger plan.

I won't argue the proposal, even if I felt able, must admit that it's from the blue, well done! It's often as hard to not hear about such things. Like 3C it's going to be far easier to manage impact (v alpine tas) & there's no arguing that disappearing into the 'wilds' is better, globally, than roaring around between resorts (shrug).

Alternatives? Yes, there are many, almost anything would be better. I look at that mine site with a conservative eye, deplorable, criminal! we should expect more of our regulators! (industry is industry) If in a recreation zone the impact could be creatively mediated, a MTB park or rec centre. The network of waterways lend themselves to low impact alternatives appropriate to WHA.. anything that doesn't just have the effect of another 'acceptable' EOI leaning on the precedents mentioned. Too late already though, whether a red herring, part of a wider plan, cunning political move (any one of a number of possibilities).

Here on this forum, we can hardly see the impact (V minimal impact alternative) enough to consider a single image, even when someone local does try to sincerely relate them on their merits, my expectations started pretty low.

The Coldstream River. Looks beautiful, is beautiful. Unfortunately it's flow carries a fairly high amount of sediment due to tree farming operations in it's headwaters. The area has a network of tracks used by 4WD-ers, fisherman, rafters and bushwalkers, there is stunning rainforest, waterfalls and provides access routes to the mountains in the area. It is completely open to mining exploration and forestry. Some of these river systems are at a tipping point where further disruption in the area could see them go the way of the Whyte, or Que or King...

A beaut place to explore.

Maybe he should have been. There may be an excuse for the younger crowd, but whether the proponents mentioned above, of our era, acknowledge the fact or not the concerns are as the guy has been trying to get across. If somewhat haphazardly.

Comments such as that above, despite the banter, are those that keep 92% of us off side. This is a bushwalking forum and if the proponents do have a bigger picture perhaps they could better present it? And with nothing but respect! And address the other issues that have been questioned here through these Tarkine topics, properly, join in rather than react like you are begrudgingly addressing underlings. A bush walk on public land, to a forum of bush walkers themselves? Beforehand at best but I can appreciate the need for political gamesmanship.

At the very least acknowledge the undeniable EOI link. Do so while considering that many of us, in parks, have deep concerns over the EOI process and future implications. Many (in my circle) are dismayed at the lack of any effective opposition to commercialising the back blocks. That some, despite the prize they hope for, would apparently fall over themselves to--- collaterally diminish WHA and do the politicians bidding, is hard to fathom.

Nuts should start his own foundation, i'd join. (press advisor perhaps :lol: )

Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area: Federal Government joins Tasmanian bid to overturn 4WD ban

The Commonwealth has joined the Tasmanian Government's appeal against a ruling to keep four-wheel-drive tracks in the state's Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area closed.

The Federal Court ruling from March could have implications for how areas with Indigenous heritage values are managed across the country.

The court ruled the controversial tracks should remain closed after the Tasmania Aboriginal Centre (TAC) contested a State Government plan to allow drivers back into the area.

The ruling found reopening the tracks risked damage to areas of Indigenous significance, including middens.

Today, the Commonwealth and State governments appeared before the full bench of the Federal Court in Hobart to begin the appeal.


How typical. <groan>

Some good news on the mining front. Imagine asking for reasons for mining lease grants ... the EDO doing what the EPA has no desire to do. Great work by Scott and Jess.

The Commonwealth looks set to determine whether state plans to reopen four-wheel drive tracks in the Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area on Tasmania's west coast will go ahead.

The legal battle about the tracks was listed again on Wednesday and the Federal Court noted that the Tasmanian Government had undertaken to give notice to the Tasmanian Aboriginal Corporation (TAC) about any reopenings, or to refer its plans to reopen tracks to the Federal Environment Minister.

The State Government says the decision now allows it to plan to reopen tracks and follow appropriate procedures under federal legislation.

In the 2014 election, the Tasmanian Government promised it would reopen the tracks in the area, which had been closed by the Labor government due to concerns about Aboriginal site damage.

Court action followed this decision, after TAC sought an injunction.

TAC chief executive Heather Sculthorpe said the court's latest decision was a victory.

"It's a total win, because they thought they could get those tracks open by press release," she said.

"Not through having regard to federal legislation, not by talking to the Aboriginal communities about the possibilities, and this court case has confirmed that neither of those things is possible," she said.

Tasmanian Environment and Heritage Minister Matthew Groom also welcomed the outcome.

"The decision gives certainty to the processes that are required to be undertaken in relation to improving access in the Arthur-Pieman conservation area," he said.

"We welcome the decision by the Federal Court of Australia that will enable planning to commence on providing appropriate access for recreational use in the area."

Mr Groom said planning for the tracks would involve consultation with both Aboriginal communities and four-wheel drive groups.

He said the Government was committed to ensuring that any impact on Aboriginal heritage or any other matter of national environmental significance was referred to the Commonwealth for a determination under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act.

It is unclear when the Government will move to reopen tracks.

Off-road Tarkine tracks to remain closed

MATT MALONEY 12 Oct 2016, 1 p.m.

The Federal Court has put a halt on the state government’s plan to immediately reopen four-wheel-drive tracks in the Tarkine.

The court on Wednesday said the government would have to either:

send plans to reopen four-wheel-drive tracks in the Tarkine to the federal Environment Minister for approval;
risk having the issue sent back before the Federal Court judge who originally found that the works would negatively impact Aboriginal heritage in the area;
or abandon plans to reopen the tracks

The decision follows an appeal by the government against a decision made by Justice Debra Mortimer federal court who ruled the move would negatively impact Aboriginal heritage in the area.

The state government in 2014 wanted to reopen tracks closed by the previous government to prevent Aboriginal sites being damaged.

The Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre sought an injunction on the plan shortly after.

The court in its new decision accepted undertakings from the state government that it would consider its planned actions for reopening the tracks and would either refer the proposal to the federal Environment Minister, or if referral was not deemed necessary, notify the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre at least 30 days before works commenced.

It found that the works required to reopen the tracks were actions under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act and potential heritage impacts should be considered under the act.

The court remitted the matter to Justice Mortimer to “bring finality to the proceeding” though no timeframes had been set for a further hearing, given that the government may decide to refer the matter to the Federal Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg.

Environment Minister Matthew Groom said the government remained committed to reopening the tracks.

“The decision gives certainty to the processes that are required to be undertaken in relation to improving access in the Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area,” he said.

Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre chief executive Heather Sculthorpe said the state government had one last chance to redeem itself from “an enduring legacy of hypocrisy” by finding other areas for off-road vehicles.

“The state must now stop wasting even more taxpayers’ money and let go of its illegitimate proposal to open the tracks without regard to Aboriginal heritage or federal legislation,” she said.

Braddon Labor MHR Justine Keay said she had written to Mr Frydenberg about the issue following a meeting of various stakeholders in Smithton last month.

“I hope now the State Government can work with its federal counterparts to reopen tracks in the area,” Ms Keay said.

“I also encourage the federal minister to work with the state government to involve all relevant stakeholders in any future management arrangements for the area.”

Artist conservation immersive 'Tarkine in Motion' is happening for the third year running, this year 150 artists and volunteers will be up there to represent the wild. If you are an artist and would like to be involved cut-off is this Friday. You can PM me or apply through the Bob Brown Foundation. Or, if you'd like to support the artists from afar, please donate here https://pozible.com/project/tarkine-in-motion-1

If you'd just like to hear part of a beautiful song written at last years event and see some images filmed last year take a look at the video on that link. I made it :)

With the state government looking to open up 350,000ha of forests for logging even the industry doesn't want, this years event is aimed at documenting the forests of takayna / Tarkine most imminently threatened. Thanks in advance for any support, big or small...

Is the first shot meant to remind me of the circle of Willis, or is that just because I worked in neurosurgery for years? If it is I like the symbolism, if not I guess that's just my overactive imagination.

If you live on the Central Coast, NSW, a film I made about the 'Tarkine in Motion' project and artists will screen up that way on June 8th. Along with the feature doco, there will be some live music and a slideshow inspired by the region. Also a QnA discussing the project and the place, and a raffle! The fantastic short film 'takayna' will also feature. Hopefully it will inspire some folk from up that way to visit this incredible region for a long, wild walk.
