The Wilderness Society

The Wilderness Society

Our vision is to transform Australia into a society that protects, respects and connects with the natural worlds that sustain us.

The natural processes that sustain our land operate over great distances and long periods of time. That means we need to ‘think big’ when it comes to conservation. The Wilderness Society is championing a new and positive vision for our environment and for all Australians.

Landscape Classification

Landscape classification system for visitor management

There is considerable variation in the naturalness of landscapes across QPWS managed areas. At some sites there is significant evidence of human modification of the environment while at others the natural condition appears unaltered. QPWS managed areas also host a diverse range of visitor activities, and the people undertaking these activities have different preferences in terms of the biophysical, social and managerial features of the sites and areas they use.
