New park areas in NSW


By David Brazil

Following questions in state parliament from Dr Terry Metherell and increased pressure from environmental groups, five new national park areas are to be created in New South Wales.

The decision comes out of a complete review of state recreation areas. The Davidson State Recreation Area, in Metherell's electorate, is to be incorporated into the Garigal National Park. Other areas to be designated include the Lane Cove River Park and the Georges River in Sydney, Bournda in the south-east, Booti Booti, Cattai and Mitchell Park near Windsor. n
