Extension of public comment period for draft Kakadu management plan

19 April 2006.

The period for public comment on Kakadu National Park's draft management plan has been extended, as a number of stakeholders have been unable to meet the original 19 April deadline.

The new deadline for public comment is 26 May 2006.

The Director and the Board welcome comments from traditional owners, the tourism industry, fishing groups, conservationists and other members of the public.
