Help save the Mt Warning summit walk. Please sign this E petition and share with your friends. Put together by local bushwalkers.

Reopen Mt Warning (Wollumbin) for everyone to appreciate and enjoy
To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly, we request the government reopen the Mount Warning (Wollumbin) Summit track, allowing all Australians and our visitors, to continue appreciating this world class environment and natural attraction. In the words of Marlene Boyd, local area Ngarakwal Nganduwal elder, "How can the public experience the spiritual significance of this land if they do not climb the summit and witness creation?"

NPWS website states “There’s a nature walk for every style of bushwalker in NSW national parks. Whether you’re a social walker, more of a well-balanced traveller, a brave adventurer, or a wise explorer, you’ll enjoy the experiences available on many of our best nature walks”. Mt Warning Summit track is one such walk, catering to all walker’s needs.
The descendants of the first Australians are not the only people with a sense of spiritual connection to the land. Mt Warning was dedicated as a National Park for the benefit of all Australians to experience with respect. The summit track attracts 170,000 visitors annually.

We request the parliament installs relevant signage among other initiatives to promote reconciliation and understanding of local indigenous culture in our community, including the significance of the mountain. The track should be maintained with safety at the final summit section easily improved. The Mount Warning Summit is a beautiful, natural, healthy, experience providing a unique appreciation of our culture, environment and an opportunity to appreciate this special land we have.

We request the Mt Warning Summit Track be reopened.

Cheers
Marc

I think you're doing yourself a dis-service by suggesting residency in NSW be a requirement for becoming a participant in the petition.
I would not be surprised if half or more than half of the regular visitors to the mountain hail from Southeast Queensland.
The state border should not have any relevance here.
Ever on the search for a one ended stick.

Petitions to the NSW parliament may only be signed by NSW residents. This is unfortunate for people who support issues such as the above and live outside NSW.
