The purchase of the station in 2020 by the NSW government is a significant step in both indigenous and wildlife advancement. A move by the Queensland government to alter the flow of the Bulloo River could change that arrangement forever. The 153,415-hectare property which the government has acquired will become a National Park. Inside the property are unique opportunities to explore Australian life mostly untouched for 200,000 years.
The water at Narriearra and it’s protection gives students an idea of how the Tasmanian Dam case evolved. Water and our constitution is a question that is always answered by both legislation and the courts. I hope everyone gets a chance to see this new park and the Sturt National Park next to it.
