Abstract

A member of a Northern Tasmanian Aboriginal group says low-scale tourism in wilderness areas is essential to the livelihoods of Aboriginal people.

Melythina Tiakana Warrana Aboriginal Corporation spokeswoman Emma Lee contributed to the draft plan for Tasmania's Wilderness World Heritage Area, which would see the area rezoned "remote recreation", meaning some low-scale tourism development may be allowed.
