    Why not leave it as it is? national park would mean no grazing which in a few years would be a huge fire risk

    No theres common sense you dont see much these days.....Not since someone pointed out importing mountain lions to control deer wouldn't work as deer run faster than sheep.....

    I would not like to see it as a National Park under the current legislation and management framework, but by the same token as an enduring "crown park" with those prepared to make a "on the ground contribution" to its upkeep having a real say in its management would be good.

    The fire risk thing is interesting, its a "storyline" I've heard a million times, but personally I have a very strong suspicion its complete bullshit, if it were so then "retired lands of 30 years ago (Lake Mavoura area for example, but there are 10's of thousands of other hectares as examples) and other lands should have gone up in huge smokeballs several times over by now.

    I've seen more "accidental" fires on leasehold than on crown land in the last 5 or so years.

    I'll let ya know how cold it is, i'm heading in next week.... Been looking forward to my 5day booking for 3months and now it turns out I have a working bee and agms to go to that clash hinky I'll be going in and out a few times depending on weather and animals seen.

    Anyone had any of the blocks between Tennyson and Sedgemoor lakes? Got the upper Wairau and never been up that end before.

    National parks are (supposed) to be primarily about preserving places in their 'pristine state'. Places like Molesworth are far too modified to get even close to that threshold, I would have thought?

    No point being a national park for hunters the 1080 has killed all the deer, and you can’t take dogs. All it would be good for is taking photos of another national park for tourists.
