Australia | Forest slated for NP status to be opened to logging instead, Queensland government says

Thousands of hectares of native forest north of Noosa, which had been due to become national park, will now be open to the timber industry in order to save hundreds of jobs.


The Queensland Government made the decision to extend the current harvesting permits in the Wide Bay-Burnett region until 2026 but would not say how much land would be accessed.
