Grampians Rock Climbing

Victorian Parliament - 6 February, 2020 - 

To the Legislative Assembly of Victoria—Grampians Rock Climbing

This petition of the rock climbing community draws to the attention of the house the need for clarifications and concessions regarding any potential controls and restrictions to rock climbing activities within the Grampians National Park. The petitioners therefore requests that the Legislative Assembly:

  • 1.Grant interim approval to rock climb responsibly within Special Protection Areas,
  • 2.Appropriately consult during the forthcoming Grampians Management Plan process to ensure that rock climbers can assist in protecting individual climbing sites where there is a specific cultural or environmental risk. This consultation should include representation by at least three nominated rock-climbing specialists. Report recommendations from these specialists must be assessed and incorporated into the Grampians Management Plan.

By Ms KEALY (Lowan) (437 signatures).


Ordered that petitions be considered next day on motion of Ms KEALY (Lowan).
