About Unlock Australia

Unlock Australia (ULA) is a not for profit company dedicated to opening up public lands and waterways for outdoor recreation.

ULA was formed to fight the extreme green mind-set of National Parks and so called 'conservationists' who believe the bush is best protected by locking people out. As bush lovers and users, we know this to be fundamentally wrong. Most of our public lands are suffering from a total lack of practical management as displayed by the rapid growth in feral animals (cats and pigs are destroying Australia's delicate flora and fauna) and the influx of non-native weeds and vegetation.

We're also very concerned with the 'privatisation' of public lands which consistently sees access barred to all but a few elite groups. As Australians, the bush, the beaches and the waterways belong to all of us. This is our birthright.

THE FIGHT

Originally the Green movement raised some very important issues that are important to all bush lovers however the last fifteen years have seen this movement become increasingly academic and elitist and out of touch with practical land management. The results, apart from less access to public lands than ever in the history of this country, have been almost catastrophic.

It's ridiculous in a country as huge as Australia with such a small population to gate people out of bush lands. Unlock Australia is dedicated to reversing this trend, to suggest and promote better ways of managing public lands and to involve all bush lovers in the care and maintenance of our country.

To do this Unlock Australia will raise money to spend on raising awareness and holding rallies and protests across the nation. ULA exists to bring all lovers of our outdoors together as a united front against the current mind set of exclusion. We will do this by encouraging National Parks, State Forests and the Department of Primary Industries to open up our lands to recreational users. We will also promote and encourage love and respect for our shared national resource and educate people in sustainable bush use.

 

WE BELIEVE

- public land (national parks, state forests, stock routes and waterways) belongs to all Australians.

- that sustainable and responsible land management should achieve a balance between recreation and conservation.

- that free camping areas throughout Australia should be encouraged and increased for the benefit of all travellers.

- that more provisions and allowances should be made for people touring with caravans, motorhomes and camper trailers.

- that Indigenous people's should be helped and encouraged to open their lands to travellers in order to benefit financially as well as promoting integration.

- that the economic and health benefits of outdoor recreation are both viable and essential to a strong Australia.

- that any legislation, government bodies and organisations hindering outdoor recreation needs to be identified and fought on every level.

 

THE FUTURE

Australia, with our huge and diverse public lands, should lead the world in offering outdoor recreation activities and free camping possibilities. As other countries shrink with the burdens of population, our country has the potential to grow an exceptionally viable outdoor recreation industry as well as maintaining our Australian way of life.
