We thank Council for undertaking investigations to evaluate the significance of the reserve’s Indigenous cultural heritage and unique mix of sensitive ecology. We applaud Council for the revised approach taken to managing Point Cartwright based on these findings, including new approaches to recognising and managing profound Indigenous cultural heritage, designating new environmental protection areas, and establishing new responsible approaches to pet management.


The new approaches in the Draft Master Plan will help the reserve recover from years of degradation.  The new pet access restrictions on the site represent a long overdue and responsible shift in policy. The new provisions have given heightened priority and focus toward the conservation of the site’s unique human and ecological values. In this way, the draft plan provides a blueprint for starting the process of site recovery by fostering the restoration of significant biotopes and healing of country and culture. The new provisions will help ensure future generations can enjoy Point Cartwright’s unique human and natural attributes for years to come.


The Draft Master Plan is a responsible forward thinking evidence-based policy statement. We encourage everyone to please support the principles and outcomes embodied in the Draft Master Plan. Your feedback will help ensure Point Cartwright’s profound Indigenous cultural heritage and nationally significant ecology are protected and better managed into the future.


We urge everyone to support the master plan by answering YES to Question 1 of the survey and use the text field that comes up afterwards to put in any feedback you wish to add. You can also submit your comments by direct email to:


Please reach out to as many people as you can and share the survey with people in your community groups.


Lets show strong support for Council’s forward thinking policy stance.


Thank you everyone ! 🙂
