The Budjiti People are the Traditional Owners of Currawinya National Park­—a cultural landscape that is the birthplace of Budjiti language, customs, traditions and practices and a resting place for their ancestors. Located in south-western Queensland on the border with New South Wales, the park protects internationally significant wetlands, threatened species habitat and a rich pastoral history.

    • Catchment (including creeks and rivers)
  • Bilby

Members of the community are encouraged to review and put forward their views on these draft planning documents by making a submission. All submissions will be considered when preparing the final management plan.
