Where does that stand now Justine is now no longer in parliament? Hopefully she can or will still lodge this as a valid poll.

I also wonder how many people still think this has ruined their experience of the Cradle Mountain and Lake St Clair National Park.


The choppers used for maintenance and resupply of the private huts along the OT do not fly in during the peak season. They only fly in during Winter specifically to minimise the impact of other park users.

Although they still do bother people at that time of year, at least they are not flying punters in during the peak season.

Having said that, I'd prefer that they didn't do it at all.

Just to set the record straight...
TasWalkingCo also do a mid-season resupply and 'poo-removal' mission in February. They base their helicopter operations at Arm River to minimise over-flying the Overland Track as much as possible as per the fly neighbourly advice for the WHA.

Is impact on other users the base line for WHA management? Composting could cut the flights in half. Is flying in food (and the chardy) a good enough excuse? Instead, permits double up.. do flights double up on the basis that other users have been tolerant enough to date? Slip in a heli- canyoning operation on the public good grace.

BUMP - For those that haven't submitted something already, today is the last chance to submit comments before the proposal goes to the minister.

Thanks, done. Let's hope commonsense prevails...
