Establishing the Southern Flinders Precinct will bring together a unique partnership of environmental organisations, economic agencies, Councils and State and Australian Government.
The South Australian Government has committed $5million to establish the Southern Flinders Precinct as part of the Parks 2025 strategy.
This funding will be matched through a community partnership.
The “Remarkable Southern Flinders” proposal, is a concept put forward by community partners including the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife, Northern Areas Council, District Council of Mount Remarkable, Port Pirie Regional Council and Regional Development Australia Yorke and Mid North to further advance and promote the Southern Flinders region as a tourism destination.
Together these partners put forward the “Remarkable Southern Flinders” proposal to the Australian Government and were successful in securing $5million from the Building Better Regions Fund.
The addition of the funding for the Remarkable Southern Flinders proposal will expand the infrastructure able to be built across the new national park precinct.
The establishment of the park will closely involve the traditional owners of the land, the Nukunu Nation. The Nukunu will also be co-managers of the Telowie Gorge Conservation Park, inside the greater Southern Flinders Precinct.
