Trials on horse riding in wilderness commenced in April 2014 in wilderness areas within Kosciuszko National Park, Mummel Gulf National Park, Deua National Park and Monga National Park. The plans of management relevant to each of these parks were amended in February 2014 to enable the trials to proceed on identified pilot routes for a period of up to two years.
After considering outcomes from the trial and continuing stakeholder interest, proposed amendments have been developed for the 3 plans of management to enable horse riding to continue in the locations that were part of the trial.
Public exhibition of the proposed amendments provided an opportunity for the community to have a say in the future management of horse riding in locations that were part of the horse riding in wilderness trial. Submissions closed 7 August 2018.
