Changes are proposed to the Kosciuszko National Park Plan of Management to better manage and service park visitation. Park visitation has increased significantly since the plan was adopted in 2006. This places pressure on management to provide opportunities for visitors to experience the park and protect its environment from the potential impacts of increased visitation.

This amendment proposes to enable the core elements of the Snowy Mountains Special Activation Precinct (SAP) and adjust parkwide policy on built accommodation. Other minor amendments which directly or indirectly relate to these purposes are also included in this document.
