Regional Forest Agreements

'Regional Forest Agreements' are 20-year agreements between the State and Commonwealth Governments that permit the logging of public native forests. Under the 'RFAs' forests in NSW have suffered through intensive logging which damages not just the trees being logged but many threatened species which rely on healthy forests. These public forests belong to the people of NSW and we now have a vital opportunity to have a say on how they are managed in the future.

Forests For All - Ending native forest logging through a positive alternative

National Parks Association of NSW initiated this campaign because we’re at a crossroads in history as the 'RFAs' start to expire. 

Forests For All seeks to protect public native forests and end damaging industrial logging. But our plan is for more than that. We want to increase public access to forests for recreation and nature-based tourism. We want to see regional communities benefit from forests economically, physically and emotionally. We want to protect the benefits that forests provide to people: like clean, plentiful water supplies and carbon storage. And we want to see our forests restored to health and the wildlife in them thrive.

The Great Koala National Park

The Great Koala National Park (GKNP) would see 175,000ha of publicly owned state forests added to existing protected areas to form a 315,000ha reserve in the Coffs Harbour hinterland. It would be the flagship of a suite of proposed koala reserves between Port Stephens and the Qld border.

The GKNP would be Australia’s first large national park dedicated to protecting our global treasure. It would protect koala habitat in five local government areas: Coffs Harbour, Clarence Valley, Bellingen, Nambucca and Kempsey.
