The economic viability of the proposed Great Forest National Park

The proposed Great Forest National Park has provoked environmental, political, economic and socio-cultural controversy through conflicting values of the Central Highlands. The topic is contentious, as management outcomes in any regard will infringe upon vested interests of stakeholder groups. It is therefore essential that decisions be based on extensive research, collaboration between stakeholders, and investigation into future outcomes.
